Celtic nearly saw their epic unbeaten run come to an end on Saturday after a battling Hibernian almost snatched victory at Celtic Park with an excellent second half performance.
The Hoops opened the scoring through Callum McGregor but Neil Lennon’s men rallied to produce an exceptional display and take the lead through a John McGinn double.
Resilient Celtic were not to be denied though and McGregor netted his second of the match 10 minutes from time to prevent the loss and extend their domestic unbeaten run to 58 matches.
It wasn’t the best of performances from Brendan Rodgers’ men after their midweek exploits against Anderlecht but in avoiding defeat they’ve kept their spot at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
One man in particular that Celtic fans are looking for more from is midfielder Olivier Ntcham. The 21-year-old again looked a bit off the pace in a frantic midfield battle and struggled to assert himself on the match. After a few shaky performances, fans are hoping he can start to show the consistency required to excel in the Hoops.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his display on Saturday…
No doubting big Ntcham has got potential to be a top player but recently has been awful. Although he had a good 2nd half in Belgium

Thought ntcham and Hayes were very poor today

Spare me this good game nonsense. Celtic were terrible today. At no point in any control. Ntcham is a liability!

Why can't you just accept that we didn't deserve to win today? Central midfield was woeful. Ntcham was rotten. But let's just blame the ref.

Johnny Hayes getting a hard time for today’s performance, and yet Ntcham – for the second game in a row – was worst player on the park.

Ntcham is a funny one. Looks a world beater one game and then looks like he has never kicked a ball the next. Loads to prove

General consensus is ntcham has way more poor games than good ones. He's got age on his side, but a lot to learn

Poor showing from the Hoops today. Unbeaten record still intact tho a bonus. Hayes not good enough and Ntcham again was diabolical.
