Oliver Ntcham’s stoppage time winner against Lazio almost broke the internet.

It promised to be a nervous five minutes of added time but in the final sixty seconds Mo Elyounoussi set up Ntcham who showed the composure of a striker to dink the ball around the keeper into the net.

The Frenchman had replaced Ryan Christie late in the second half but rather than hold on for a point the former Manchester City man turned out to be the matchwinner.

Last month Neil Lennon said that he was finding it difficult to leave Ntcham out of his side but in recent matches Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and Christie has become the established midfield trio.

On its own the win was memorable but after four matches of Group E Celtic have qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League- ensuring European football in February for the third season running.

Matchday Five brings Rennes to Celtic Park with the incentive for the hoops being to finish the section in top place which should in theory provide an easier draw in the knock out phase.
