Celtic have it all to do in their UEFA Champions League tie against AEK Athens after failing to beat the Greek champions at home on Wednesday night.
Despite the visitors going down to 10 men early in the second half, the Hoops could not improve on the 1-1 scoreline of the first half after Viktor Klonaridis cancelled out Callum McGregor’s opener.
It was a frustrating night and leaves the Hoops with a massive task in the away leg, a venue where the Greek side conceded just 5 league goals last season.
Many fans failed to find real positives coming out of the fixture, but were delighted by the performance of midfielder Olivier Ntcham at least.
He dominated the middle of the park, with almost every move forward going through the Frenchman at some point. If not for him, the Hoops may have lack any urgency at all.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Ntcham has been the best player on the parkby a mile. We are going to need a lot more than him next week.

Ntcham head and shoulders above everyone on the park, Forrest and McGregor also decent

Ntcham was fantastic tonight. Carried that midfield beside a lacklustre looking brown

Ntcham is different class. He must go hame at night and greet at the though of having to spend another 90 minutes on the park with lustig

Ntcham is a cut above, if every player wis as calm on the ball we’d be untouchable
