It would be a fair assessment to say that a lot of the Celtic players who featured at Easter Road yesterday made a mockery of themselves. The Hoops fell to a 2-0 defeat against Neil Lennon’s side, and the fans were far from happy. One man in particular who had a shocker was Olivier Ntcham, and the fans have been letting him know about it.
Twitter is never a safe place for a footballer after a poor performance, and it’s a good thing that Ntchaqm doesn’t have it after some of the things that the Hoops have had to say about the Frenchman. This season is the 22-year-old’s 2nd at Parkhead after signing from Manchester City in summer 2017, and whilst his first season brought some cracking displays, his second has let him down so far.
It’s true that the midfielder may well be suffering from second season syndrome at the club, although for the fans, that excuse simply won’t cut it. Yesterday Ntcham was woeful beyond belief and his partnership with Scott Brown in the middle of the park was one that the Bhoys will be desperate to avoid seeing again, which you’d never have thought they’d be saying this time last year.
You can read exactly what the Hoops have been saying about Ntcham below:
Can’t believe Ntcham just signed a new deal with us he is pathetic can’t believe some celtic fans thought he was good

3 at the back with two midfielders who slow the game down to much. Ntcham shouldn’t be near that team and Edouard is lucky we only have one striker.

@CelticFC Ntcham shouldn’t wear a Celtic shirt again, he couldn’t care less.

Why can’t ntcham or Sinclair get injured instead of our good players?

Pathetic! We don't have the depth in squad for all these changes! Brown and Ntcham slow our midfield right down

Did Ntcham leave for lyon? That surely isn't him on the park

Brown and ntcham in the same midfield showing how much it doesnt work

The Hoops were livid with Ntcham after yesterday, and if he doesn’t sort his form out sooner or later then he could be facing a Parkhead exit.
