Celtic have picked up an important victory in Scottish Premiership, winning 2-0 at home to Motherwell this afternoon.

Neil Lennon’s Bhoys, fresh from the high of Thursday night’s unbelievable trip to Rome, never looked like dropping points against the Steelmen.

The win means we remain top of the table on goal difference.

The manager didn’t make too many changes to the team that faced Lazio, with Jeremie Frimpong and Olivier Ntcham notably coming into the starting eleven.

Ntcham was, of course, our hero in Italy and his performance in midfield today will do his chances of more starts over the coming weeks and months no harm at all.

With competition fierce in his position – both Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic remain contenders for starts – it was a rare opportunity for the Frenchman to impress from the start.

He strolled through the 90 minutes displaying his impressive passing, composure on the ball and natural strength.

When he’s playing with confidence and purpose there aren’t many players more exciting to watch at the club.

These fans were delighted with his showing today, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
