Olivier Ntcham made his first Celtic appearance since Christmas 2020 but failed to impress the fans watching on Celtic TV.

The midfielder was part of the half time changeover, forming a midfield barrier alongside Liam Shaw.

Neil Lennon claimed that Ntcham had been looking to get out of Celtic for some time when he joined Marseille in January, the switch to France did nothing for his reputation with the prospect of a permanent deal quickly dismissed.

As recently as a fortnight ago it looked like the former French u-21 internationalist was close to joining AEK Athens but that move also seems to have fallen through with a return to Celtic following a period of solo training.

Ntcham replaced Callum McGregor at half-time today but it coincided with a noticeable drop in the quality of the performance.

In 10 days time Celtic take on Midtjylland in a Champions League qualifier- it seems highly unlikely that the matchwinner against Lazio less than two years ago will be involved against the Danes.
