Celtic fans want Olivier Ntcham to start against Rangers

Celtic can put two hands on their eighth consecutive Scottish Premiership title with a win over Old Firm rivals Rangers on Sunday afternoon – and Hoops fans want Olivier Ntcham to start.

Ntcham, 23, has failed to feature for Celtic in 2019. He picked up a hamstring injury during the winter break, last pulling on the green and white in the 1-0 defeat to Rangers.

The £4.5million (BBC) signing from Manchester City has starred in the past against Rangers. One of his six goals this season was against Rangers at Parkhead in a 1-0 win under Brendan Rodgers.

Ntcham has returned to training after a long spell out with muscle problem, according to the Scottish Sun. The report also claims that Tom Rogic and Dedryck Boyata trained ahead of the third Old Firm derby of the season.

Neil Lennon has used Nir Bitton alongside captain Scott Brown in midfield in his first three games, before Callum McGregor partnered Brown in the 1-0 win over Dundee.

Upon hearing of the news that Ntcham had returned to Celtic training, fans are desperate to see the France Under-21 international return to the side against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

A win, and Celtic go 13 points clear at the top with only seven league games to play.
