Olivier Ntcham provided Celtic fans with 45 minutes of hope last night against Anderlecht.

The midfielder has very much been hit or miss since Celtic paid Manchester City £4.5m for his services but last night was very much a hit.

Ntcham replaced Stuart Armstrong at half time and all of a sudden there was some purpose, drive and shape about the hoops.

The Champions League is an unforgiving arena, any weaknesses are exposed but it is the only place that the Celtic players can expect to learn and develop.

There’s been a few lessons for Ntcham over the last few months with some brutal verdicts delivered after the away matches against Paris Saint Germain.

Last night he looked like a player on top of his game. Alongside Scott Brown there is a very strong base to build around with the 21-year-old showing that he will only get better.
