Celtic fans react to Olivier Ntcham display vs Lazio

Celtic manager Neil Lennon taking the acclaim of the crowd

Olivier Ntcham's dramatic injury-time victor against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico sent Celtic into the last 32 of the Europa League.

Celtic won 2-1 at Lazio with nearly the last kick of the game as Frenchman Ntcham elegantly chipped the ball over the oncoming goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha deep in stoppage time for the Scottish side's' first-ever victory on Italian soil.

A counter attack in the fifth minute of stoppage time saw the ball sent to Ntcham, who had found space on the right and he dinked his shot over the onrushing Lazio goalkeeper.

Olivier Ntcham's dramatic stoppage-time strike sent the fans insane all over the world, and fans poured their admiration over the player and his celebration as well.


CHRIS SUTTON couldn't hide his delight when Olivier Ntcham delicately chipped the 94th-minute victor into the back of the Lazio net.

The Scottish Premiership champions needed a first triumph on Italian soil to guarantee their place in the last 32 with two games to spare, but things looked bleak for Neil Lennon's side when Ciro Immobile capped a dominant Lazio start with an early opener.

There were fears the Serie A side would add to their advantage, but Celtic drew themselves level in the 38th minute through James Forrest.

"We had more scoring opportunities and deserved to win".
