ALAN BRAZIL has launched an astonishing rant in the direction of Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham in the wake of Celtic’s 2-2 draw with French league leaders Lille on Thursday night. The Talksport pundit called the midfielder out as Celtic allowed a two goal lead to slip in the second half, accusing him of downing tools.
Brazil selected a few players that he thought hadn’t been pulling their weight in recent times. Celtic are six points behind Rangers, albeit with a game in hand but could be nine behind if Rangers win on Sunday. Speaking to the Daily Record, Brazil speculated that the stuttering form is down to some players not wanting to be at the club.
“Who wants to be there? Edouard could play in the Premiership for me, no danger. Does he want to stay at Celtic?
“Ntcham, he looks as if he’s tools down and not bothered.
“I think when Celtic get the squad back then it’s going to be close. Neil doesn’t have a great squad, but in terms of Scottish football, Celtic’s squad is as good as any so they’ve just got to get on with it and go on a run.
“Duffy has struggled, the big fella since he’s gone to Celtic. He wants too much time on the ball.
“I don’t watch every game of Celtic’s so it’s only the games I’ve watched. Liven yourself up, he wants too much time on the ball.
“Set pieces for Celtic are garbage, they’ve got to work on set pieces.
Ntcham had a good first half but the Frenchman looked visibly tired as the French side attempted to claw themselves into the game. Edouard didn’t look right before his diagnosis with COVID-19; however, now that he is back hopefully the attacker will be back to his best in the two
