Olivier Ntcham needs to redeem himself for Celtic
Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham should be on thin ice with manager Brendan Rodgers right now and needs to redeem himself on Wednesday night.
The Bhoys host Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership and go into the contest on the back off back-to-back defeated across all competitions.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have been off the pace recently and that has certainly been the case with Ntcham.
The Frenchman did come off the bench to score a penalty in the Europa League defeat to Red Bull Salzburg, but his overall performances have been dire of late.
He was woeful in the 2-0 loss to Hibernian at the weekend in the centre of the park and needs to recapture his best form quickly during the injury absence of Ryan Christie.
Ntcham has shown he can be extremely sloppy in possession and his passing range has been slack in recent games.
Meanwhile, he’s missing the intensity he has proven he can have in the past and is no longer the engine room at Parkhead driving them on.
Celtic showed a lot of faith in the 22-year-old back in November with a new long-term contract and so far he’s yet to prove he can be a mainstay in the side moving forward.
