Chris Sutton hails brilliant Celtic French duo

Chris Sutton has praised Celtic’s French duo Olivier Ntcham and Christopher Jullien for their recent performances.

Ntcham has been with the Scottish giants since 2017 and the central midfielder is a real fans’ favourite.

The 23-year-old has a tough ask of breaking into a competitive midfield, but is making a positive impact whenever on the pitch this season and offers a great box-to-box role.

He scored twice in the Scottish League Cup quarter-final win over Patrick Thistle in mid-week and is still a developing talent.

Meanwhile, defender Jullien has made quite the impact since his arrival in the summer and provides excellent competition at the back.

Jullien, 26, is a powerhouse centre-back that has caught the eye in some big games for his composure and also the way he puts his body on the line.

Ex-Celtic striker and now pundit Sutton believes his former side are in an excellent position under manager Neil Lennon, who has a great squad at his disposal at Parkhead.

“Under Neil everything’s been positive. He’s got strength in depth,” Sutton told the Scottish Sun.

“Olivier Ntcham’s displays at Ibrox and in Rennes were excellent. Jullien’s looking phenomenal. Things are looking good.”

TBR’s View:

Celtic definitely do have strength in depth in their squad, which is going to be important as they look to extend their domestic dominance and also try make some inroads in Europe.

They have a sizeable task to get out of their strong Europa League group, but it’s not beyond them and they started with a great away point at Rennes.

Jullien has arrived to perhaps strengthen the backline and he now looks settled.

Meanwhile, Ntcham’s time to become a regular starter is surely just around the corner and the talented midfielder is a real talent.
