Celtic fans lost their minds over the incredible performer of Olivier Ntcham on Twitter on Tuesday even though they saw their team fall to a 1-0 defeat at Parkhead.
Ntcham, 23, was introduced at half-time by Brendan Rodgers for Stuart Armstrong and looked to have provided a major difference as the Bhoys finally started to ask serious questions of the Belgian club’s defence.
However a Jozo Simunovic own goal was enough to see the Hoops end their Champions League campaign with a defeat, although they managed to avoid a heavy enough defeat to ensure their spot in the Europa League after Christmas.
Celtic fans decided to keep looking at the positives after the loss and decided to take to Twitter to heap the praise on Ntcham after an influential display in the midfield.
One fan even claimed that Ntcham was “top drawer” on the night.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Ntcham is a master at those through passes.

Ntcham really coming into his own in this match. Great to see, as he has genuine talent! Could be the difference in this #Celtic side if he keeps up this level of performance.

What a difference a Ntcham makes

Ntcham has made 23 appearances across all competitions since joining Celtic in the summer from Manchester City.
The Frenchman has scored four goals and supplied three assists in those games and although fans were delighted with his outing against Anderlecht, Rodgers may continue to overlook him in future fixtures due to his constant squad rotation policy.
In other Celtic news, the Bhoys have suddenly become a key part of Rangers’ search for a new manager.
