By Danny Wright
Chris Sutton has decided to name just two Celtic players in his team of the week after their 1-0 win against Partick on Friday.
Olivier Ntcham scored the only goal for the Hoops at Firhill, but there was no place for the Frenchman in Sutton’s team with leaders Scott Brown and Kieran Tierney earning recognition for their roles in the win.
There we no Rangers players in Sutton’s team of the week feature, which he posted on his personal Twitter account on Monday, but Michael O’Halloran was named for a second week in a row after his two goals helped St. Johnstone win 4-1 against Motherwell and rise to the top of the table.

The Scottish winger was also named by Sutton in his team of the week after the first round of Scottish Premiership matches.
