A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Olivier Ntcham’s performance during the Hoops’ 2-0 victory over Hearts on Wednesday.
Neil Lennon’s men have extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to five points. Ntcham doubled the Bhoys’ lead after Ryan Christie had given the visitors the lead at Tynecastle.
It was a superb finish from the Frenchman. With Ntcham on the stretch to reach James Forrest’s bouncing ball into the box, it would have been easy for the former Manchester City man to balloon the ball over the bar.
But the 23-year-old kept his volley under control and sent the ball into the roof of the net. And it appears that many Celtic supporters felt that his classy finish summed up his overall performance.
Ntcham has not always been the most popular figure amongst the Celtic fans.
His quality has never been in doubt, but consistency has been a problem. His desire to produce his best form has sometimes been questioned.
But plenty of Celtic supporters are adamant that there is no-one better in the Scottish Premiership when Ntcham is playing well. And they felt that they caught a glimpse of how good he can be on Wednesday night.
Here is what some of the supporters made of Ntcham’s performance…
So many plaudits tonight. Last one, Oliver Ntcham sublime what a performance ?

Ntcham looks like he’s enjoying his football again. If Lennon gets him back to his peak that will just be another victory from the gaffer
