Sutton was a key player in Celtic teams in the early 2000s under Martin O’Neill.

He scored 86 goals in 199 games for the Parkhead side before leaving in January 2006.

Sutton won eight trophies with the Celts and reached the UEFA Cup final in 2003.

Before that, however, he enjoyed successful spells with Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers, winning the Premier League title in 1994-95 with the latter and the division’s Golden Boot award in 1997-98.

In an interview with 90min, Sutton revealed the shirts he cherishes the most with all that silverware.

From his Hoops days, he cherished one that he swapped with a legendary former teammate and one from the famous trip to Sevilla.

Sutton said: “Over the years I’ve given away a lot of my shirts but kept some for my sons, who wanted to have some of the shirts I wore. I have a couple of Blackburn Rovers shirts – one which is framed in my son’s bedroom – from the season we won the league, with a picture of the celebrations at Ewood Park I think it was the day after we won the title so we were all a bit more tired, I think.

“I was always a bit sulky when I lost a game, so I didn’t necessarily think it was the right thing to do to swap shirts if you lost a game. You see players, and I think that ‘there have been players in recent years asking for shirts at half-time, that was a bit of a no-no as far as I’m concerned.

“I had more shirts than I had imagined over the years. Once I quit, I went up to the loft and pulled out the few bags and I have some really nice things that trigger very good memories.

“They’re all part of a journey and a story. The Norwich City shirt, which I don’t remember keeping, but all of a sudden it was one of the shirts that came out of the bag and this that night against Bayern Munich at the Olympic Stadium, it’s the biggest night in the history of the club. I don’t think any other English club has done that. It’s really important for me to have that alone.

“Blackburn Rovers, I wouldn’t say it was the demise of the club, but what it was under Jack Walker and Kenny Dalglish and playing in that team alongside Alan Shearer and winning the Premier League is huge. , huge looking back and comparing to where the club are now when they can’t fill the stadium, so that means so much to me.

“I have a few Celtic shirts too. I have the Sevilla one and the treble season one. And they mean the world to me, but they all have the same value to me because they’ve all been part of my journey in football, so I don’t have any favorites in that regard.

“If I had a favorite shirt, it would probably be the one I swapped with Larsson when he came back. He was a better player than me, so having his shirt means a lot to me because of my relationship with him. J had so much admiration for him and, you know, that was the only game we lost at home in the Champions League under Martin O’Neill and it was devil’s law that he came back and scored for Barcelona.”
