ONE aspect of Neil Lennon’s Old Firm tactics that has been overlooked a little was the timing of his introduction of Olivier Ntcham to proceedings.

Rangers made some tactical adjustments of their own at half-time, and they had started to get a grip on the game in terms of possession without ever really threatening to equalise.

While you only have a one goal lead though, you never know what can happen, and it was important that Lennon addressed the situation and took control of the game again. Bringing Ntcham on allowed Celtic to do exactly that.

The Frenchman was superb when he came on, and showed once again that when he is in the mood, there is probably not a more talented midfield player in the country. His use of the ball was great, his technique was there for all to see, and it must frustrate Neil Lennon that he doesn’t always bring his ‘A’ game to the table.

When he is on song, he is a joy to watch, and a real asset to this Celtic team.
