After our rival`s fell to a 1-0 home defeat, it was one point gained against Motherwell, but you would expect to get all three after playing against ten men for the whole of the second half.
Olivier Ntcham was substituted for Stuart Armstrong on the hour mark. The Frenchman passed the ball around neatly enough, but there was lack of cutting edge in the Frenchman`s display, which was apparent across the team.
The 22 year old has certainly impressed since he arrived from Man City in the summer, and he has struck up a good partnership alongside the likes of Scott Brown in the middle of the park.
Reflecting on the weekend`s stalemate though, the midfielder said the draw was a “missed opportunity.” He felt a win would have helped the team build an even bigger lead at the top of the Premiership table than the ten point gap they currently have over second.
The response on Twitter from Celtic fans was positive:
1 point added on. Still got a good lead. Frustrating yes, but you did your best

I also rate Sinclair, he`s 1 of are top players. Ntcham should of stayed on. Take a defender off they only played 1 up top!
