Olivier Ntcham is an injury doubt for Celtic’s match against Ross County.

With Ryan Christie suspended the Frenchman seemed to be the natural replacement in midfield but that now looks unlikely.

Ntcham was a second half substitute in the 2-0 defeat from Livingston but his injury could open the door for Tom Rogic to return to the side.

During the summer there were reports of interest from Portugal and France in Ntcham but Neil Lennon recently admitted that his form made it difficult to leave him out of the side.

The Frenchman did seem to lose his composure during the 1-1 draw away to Hibs when he picked up a first half booking.

Ntcham wasn’t involved in international duty but appears to have picked up the injury during training. Christie will be available for Thursday’s Europa League tie against Lazio but will also miss next week’s match at Aberdeen through suspension.
