Celtic dominated rivals Rangers on Sunday afternoon, thumping the Light Blues 4-0 at Hampden in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
It was Brendan Rodgers’ 10th game in charge against the Gers and the win means he is still unbeaten in all of them, also winning by a four-goal margin in the derby for the third time.
At the heart of the win was man-of-the-match candidate Olivier Ntcham, who strolled proceedings in the middle of the park alongside Scott Brown.
Rangers gave the duo far too much time on the ball and the Frenchman in particular utilised it superbly, driving his team forward and using his excellent vision to great effect.
He also found himself on the scoresheet, netting the fourth goal from the penalty spot, recognition from his teammates of the effort he’d shown across the 90 minutes.
Fans were absolutely delighted with his performance and wasted no time in taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Ntcham was excellent today. Just an absolute class act on the ball. The fact him and Moussa are only 22 and 21 is frightening. People forget how young they are sometimes

Ntcham and Dembele are different class, both superb today and showed their excellent technique, positional play and strength to dominate the game 💪 🇫🇷 🍀
