Youssouf Mulumbu has impressed in his brief showings as a Celtic midfielder, is it time to give him starts instead of Olivier Ntcham?

Ntcham is one of the most high profile players at the club and on his day has been an incredible midfield force for the Hoops.

This season though those stand-out midfield performances have been few and far between. Many fans have been left unhappy with his effort levels on a consistent basis.

Could a few matches out of the team light the fire in him to push on to new heights at Celtic Park?

Mulumbu has made just two starts for the club to date as he continues to build up his match fitness, but he has impressed in his showings even though the Hoops lost both fixtures against Kilmarnock and RB Salzburg.

Away in Austria he was especially impressive and perhaps the only player to earn pass marks. Committed defensively and confident enough to move the ball on quickly, he looked like the kind of player we’ve been missing in the position in recent years.

He may have arrived at the club on a free transfer, but perhaps it’s time to give him a chance to outshine the much-hyped Ntcham.

Do you think Youssouf Mulumbu should get a run in the team ahead of Olivier Ntcham? Have your say in our poll below…
