'Quality', 'Brilliant' - Celtic fans lose their minds over midfielder display v Hamilton
Celtic fans have taken to social media to lose their minds over Olivier Ntcham for his performance in the win over Hamilton at Parkhead on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old summer signing opened the scoring with a fine volley from inside the penalty box to give the Hoops a 1-0 lead over Hamilton, in a game which the Hoops went on to win 3-1, to remain clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
The goal was the French under 21 international’s fifth of the season, and it has gone down well with Hoops fans on Twitter.
One supporter has claimed that the £4.5million man is playing so well that you can see him “grow in confidence every week”.
Here are some of the best reactions to the youngster’s performance against Hamilton:
Ntcham starting to show his worth now. Played well the last 2 games, came on in the champo league and we play a lot better. Was good at Hibs. Got a goal today. Super.lad

The Hoops then burst into life with two goals in two minutes towards the end of the first-half. James Forrest then Scott Sinclair making it 3-1 to the Hoops at half-time.
Despite chances for both sides in the second-half, including Bingham hitting the post when it seemed easier to score for Hamilton, it remained goalless and the match ended 3-1 to Celtic with the Hoops still five points clear at the top of the league.
