OLIVIER NTCHAM applauded the Celtic fans for their overwhelming support since he arrived at the Hoops in a £4.5million deal from Manchester City in the summer.
The French midfield powerhouse has played his part in the club picking up its seventh successive crown and he thoroughly enjoyed pulverising the opposition in the 5-0 derby annihilation on Sunday.
Ntcham said: “I’m very happy because we won at home in front of all the fans, and it was a really good game to play in.
“The atmosphere was unbelievable and the 12th man was great. I would say it’s one of the best atmospheres I’ve ever played in.To win titles is what every player dreams of, but to win like this is very nice.
“We were very pleased with how we played. At home, it is different to playing away. It’s easier for us to play at home because the supporters here are always behind you and they push you.
“Every time you have the ball, the fans will push you on and you have to play the ball forward and try to score more.
“This is the first league title I have won and it is special. You never forget your first league title for the rest of your life. I am happy and I want to win many more titles in my career.
“I work very hard, so this achievement means a lot to me. Every time you win something you’re always happy because you know, in football, if you win something, you deserved it.
“This gives us a lot of confidence for the remaining games and also the Scottish Cup Final. When you win a derby like we did, you can take confidence from this.”
