'Frustrating' - Ntcham sends Twitter message to Celtic fans after draw v Rangers
Olivier Ntcham has taken to social media to give his opinion on the 0-0 draw between Celtic and Rangers at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon.
The French midfielder was unfortunate to be left on the bench by Brendan Rodgers after a series of good performances.
He eventually came on in the 72nd minute, and helped the Hoops to regain control of a midfield that Rangers had spent most of the second-half dominating.
After the game, Ntcham used his personal Twitter account to send a message to Celtic supporters to let them know what he thought of the match.
“A frustrating draw for fans and players. Let’s have a rest and come back stronger in 2018. Thanks for your support during hard times.”

The match was controlled by the Hoops in the first-half, with James Forrest denied a goal by a fine Wes Foderingham save before Scott Sinclair missed an absolute sitter on the stroke of half-time.

The second-half was a completely different story as Rangers were dominant. James Tavernier had an effort saved by Craig Gordon before a wonder save from a close range Alfredo Morelos effort prevented the Ibrox side taking the lead.
Morelos then missed a great chance, heading wide when unmarked in the penalty box as Rangers looked the far more likely side to win the game.
The goal less draw kept the Hoops 11 points clear of Rangers and they remain eight points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership after Aberdeen’s 0-0 draw with Hearts.
The Bhoys now head to Dubai for their winter break and are next in action against Brechin in the Scottish Cup on the 20th of January.
