Chris Sutton claims Diego Laxalt and Moi Elyounoussi have not done enough to warrant Celtic splashing out on permanent transfers.

The pair played well against Rangers in yesterday's derby draw, with Elyounoussi grabbing his side's opener before Alfredo Morelos earned a share of the spoils for his side.

Sutton admitted he was impressed by the duo, but that one game was not enough to prove much for the club to spend big bringing either of them back to Parkhead.

Southampton may not be willing to part with the Norwegian while AC Milan could look for a hefty fee for Laxalt. But Sutton reckons it could be too little, too late.

In his Daily Record column he wrote: "Elyounoussi looked good during the contest. He was a real threat throughout the match and took his goal superbly.

"Some of his link-up play with Edouard was top class and he’s done plenty of impressive things this term.

"At the same time, when it has been the crunch he’s been found wanting and that’s my concern about looking too closely at a dead rubber.

"Yes, the evidence of this game showed me the 26-year-old would be worth keeping if Southampton are willing to do business. But then you consider the campaign as a whole and he, like others, haven’t done enough to warrant a big fee.

"Diego Laxalt falls into the same category. He looked much more like an AC Milan player in this game. He made positive runs, he was strong, he was solid in a defensive sense. It’s just what Celtic must have expected when he was signed on loan way back in October, just in time to make his debut in the first derby of the season against Rangers."
