Celtic: Fans critical of Olivier Ntcham after Boxing Day win at St Mirren - Celtic

Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham came in for criticism from quite a few of his team’s supporters following his performance on Boxing Day.

The 23-year-old was kept in a central attacking midfield role for the game at St Mirren on Thursday, the fourth time in the last five Premiership matches in which he has played that position as James Forrest and Ryan Christie lined up either side of him.

Ntcham managed to draw a couple of saves from the home side’s goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky, who got a hand to a long-range effort from the Frenchman in the first half and pulled off another good save from the Celtic man in the 78th minute. [via Sky Sports]

Ryan Brown of Read Celtic stated that “occasionally his passing didn’t come off” while John Reid of 67hailhail.com felt that the midfielder “started slowly” before getting into his stride.

These Celtic fans on Twitter were rather unconvinced by Ntcham’s display against St Mirren, with some calling for a midfield reshuffle for the visit of Rangers on Sunday:
