After dishing out a hiding for Patrick Thistle in mid-week, Celtic fans were confident heading into the weekend fixture against Hibernian. When Neil Lennon’s team selection was announced it got almost unanimous approval.

Olivier Ntcham returned to the starting line-up following his impressive double against Thistle and many thought the Frenchman was going to be key in steam rolling the Hibees.

Before the weekend fixture he had played less than 50% of the Parkhead club’s games this season, potentially as a result of the club trying to sell him to Bordeaux in the summer transfer window.

He would go on to have an eventful game for the Bhoys with many feeling he was lucky to stay on the park following a clash with Hibs Josh Vela in the first half.

Ntcham is much loved by the Parkhead faithful and took to twitter to show their love for him before kick-off, needless to say they weren’t quite as amicable after the game!

Despite this being arguably Celtic’s strongest team they still stuttered to a 1-1 draw, proving that football isn’t a game won on paper. They should have won this game comfortably such is the gulf in quality, it doesn’t help when officials don’t award blatant penalties mind you.
