Loads of Celtic fans have been criticising a decision from Neil Lennon against Aberdeen, as they feel the manager is shoehorning Olivier Ntcham into the side at the expense of other players.
The Hoops maintained their lead at the top of the Premiership courtesy of goals from Christopher Jullien and Odsonne Edouard, but it wasn’t all plain sailing for Lennon’s men.
Jullien got on the end of a corner after just seven minutes to put the hosts in front at Parkhead, but Sam Cosgrove answered 30 minutes later.
And while ‘French Eddy’ kept the winning run going with his second-half strike, the Hoops were quite wasteful and certainly not at their best.
Many fans feel this is due to an imbalanced midfield, where the presence of Ntcham means James Forrest plays from the left flank with Ryan Christie on the right.
Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions to the gaffer’s set-up down below…
Poor display from an unbalanced team. Why the obsession with playing Ntcham? His goal the other night papered over a poor display where is effort was lacking. Lennon kidding himself on if he thinks Christie is as good wide right. Stupidity.

Can someone please tell me when we last played a good game with ntcham brown in the midfield forrest the left and Christie on the right?
Im really curious too know this as I can only remember terrible performances
If Lennon keeps these strange selections up I fear losing title

You see what Lennon is going for but it’s at the cost of Christie. If he wants Ntcham in, he needs to rest Brown or McGregor otherwise it’s square pegging a round hole

Very underwhelming today, first 20 mins we should have been 2 or 3 up, aberdeens goal was sloppy from us! Lennon needs to get forrest & christie into their best positions trying to accommodate ntcham isn’t working but 10 wins a row, 3 points & still 5 points clear happy days 🍀

Why does Lennon consist on playing our best players out not position to accommodate ntcham?

3 points and it was at least a better performance once we took Ntcham off. Hopefully Lennon ditches Bolingoli and Ntcham for the huns game.
