While his employers were struggling to a defeat against Hearts it seems that Olivier Ntcham was more interested in events at Marseille.
The midfielder had a disastrous loan spell at the French side last season but that doesn’t appear to have disheartened him.
Marseilles were involved in a friendly against Villarreal with Ntcham sharing a video clip from the area of the ground behind the dug-out.

Last night there wasn’t a single Celtic fan clamouring for the return of the Manchester City midfielder but it seems that Ntcham has completely lost interest in Celtic- other than the monthly payment into his bank account.
Marseille don’t appear to be showing any interest in giving him a second chance with just AEK Athens and Turkish side Sivasspor reported to be showing interest.
A speedy conclusion to this saga would be in everyone’s interest but on recent evidence Ntcham looks likely to remain to the Celtic payroll after the transfer window has closed.
