THE Russian media rated Olivier Ntcham as Celtic’s top performer in the 3-0 nosedive against Zenit St Petersburg last night.
Clearly, they were not impressed by the Hoops as they toppled out of the Europa League after travelling with a one-goal advantage.
Awarding the players marks out of 10, the French Under-21 international midfielder scored the best with six.
Of Ntcham, Brendan Rodgers’ £4.5million buy from Manchester City in the summer, they said: “Not for nothing Mancini singled him out at a press conference.
“As in the first match, he tried to disperse the attacks in the centre of the field, he imposed a fight.
“Together with Sinclair in the second-half, he created a dangerous duo, but could not reduce the gap in the score.”
Here’s how they rated the Hoops:
Dorus de Vries: 5
Mikael Lustig: 5
Kristoffer Ajer: 5
Jozo Simunovic: 5
Kieran Tierney: 5
Olivier Ntcham: 6
Scott Brown: 5.5
Kouassi Eboue: 5
James Forrest: 5
Callum McGregor: 5.5
Moussa Dembele: 5.5
Tom Rogic: 5.5
Scott Sinclair: 5.5
Charly Musonda: 5
