Celtic fans were fuming with Olivier Ntcham last night

Celtic travelled to Austria last night to face RB Salzburg in the Europa League and, despite taking an early lead through Odsonne Edouard, they fell to a 3-1 defeat. 

The Hoops could not have started the game any better as Edouard netted the opener inside 2 minutes, but the elation of the early goal was replaced by a bitter feeling of disappointment in the second half.

In the aftermath of proceedings the supporters turned out in their numbers to slate a handful of players, but one man who came in for particularly strong criticism was Olivier Ntcham.
