OLIVIER NTCHAM has posted a message to the Celtic support and has signed off for the week describing the Motherwell games as an ‘important win’ for the club after Lazio heroics.

The match winner in Rome won a place in the starting XI for the game against the Steelmen on Sunday and was impressive.

The Frenchman’s ball retention and ability to pick a pass that man other players wouldn’t even be able to see makes him a valuable asset. Olivier’s constancy in the role has held him back at times. If he can deliver the type of football on a regular basis we know he’s capable of the midfielder would be one of the first names on the team sheet.

He’s done his chances of more starts no harm against Motherwell and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.

Posting a message after the game, the player feels part of things again after time on the bench.

A good week? Understatement of the century!
