Celtic posted on their official Twitter account on Thursday that it was 12 months to the day since they had completed the signing of midfielder Olivier Ntcham, and Bhoys fans were quick to react.
The Scottish Premiership champions, who can sign their ideal Jozo Simunovic upgrade by hijacking a Rangers bid, brought the 22-year-old to Celtic Park from Manchester City, and he certainly went on to make a big impression in the centre of the pitch for Brendan Rodgers’ men last term by making 48 appearances in all competitions.
As well as his defensive contribution, the Frenchman also showed the impact he can have in the final third too with nine goals and a further six assists, and he could have a big role to play in terms of attacking play this season too following the departure of Stuart Armstrong to Southampton.
Lots of Celtic supporters took to social media to respond to the post from the club, and while one labelled him as a “superb signing”, another said “player of the year coming up big man”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
