Olivier Ntcham played the full 90 minutes as Celtic returned to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 2-0 win over Hibernian on Sunday.
It was a positive afternoon for Neil Lennon’s side, who moved above Rangers courtesy of goals from Jeremie Frimpong and Odsonne Edouard either side of the break.
However, a number of the Scottish club’s supporters were disappointed with what they saw from midfielder Ntcham during the league affair.
Many were not shy in taking to social media to express their opinion, either.
Ntcham was guff, Forrest has dipped in form over the past couple of weeks, and Boli is never a left back. He’s positionally clueless.

All about the 3 points, Ntcham & boli well off it today, not our best performance, frimpong is outstanding for his age, what a talent! Onto the next game job done☺️🍀

There’s only one thing to say Frimpong wow that’s three man of the matches in a row breathe taking player! And Ntcham was poor in his passing today. But that’s another 3 points for the bhoys and the goal is coming for Griffiths. HH 🍀🍀

Good win. McGregor Brown good and Frimpong excellent. Back 3 fine too.
Serious questions over Ntcham and Boli. Forrest drop in form a real concern.

Not everyone shared the same opinion when it came to the Frenchman’s display, though, as some of the fans were pleased, or at least content, with his work on the afternoon.
Just seen a clip of the second goal. Really smart play from Ntcham to get over the line and stay there! He’s been a different player this season.

Ntcham decent today, but man, needs to cut down on those slack passes.

One of the supporters, meanwhile, claimed that whilst the 5 ft 11 ace is capable of excellent moments, he also has a tendency to struggle during spells of matches.
Thought it was typical Ntcham. 3 good moments, 4 moments of awfulness. Boli is a willing worker, but in a 3-5-2 his technical limitations are exposed. Needs someone in front of him

The 23-year-old is currently in his third season with Celtic having arrived from Manchester City in the summer of 2017.
