A lot of fans were blown away by the performance of Olivier Ntcham as the Bhoys thrashed Hearts 5-0 to move ten points clear of Rangers at the top of the table.

The 24-year-old opened the scoring against the Jambos in the first half when Hearts goalkeeper Joel Pereira punched an Odsonne Edouard effort straight to him, and he quickly adjusted to fire in his fourth league goal of the season.

Was Ntcham Celtic's best player?

Yes, he was superb

No, he was good but others were better

Celtic then made the match comfortable with further strikes from Christopher Jullien, Callum McGregor, a deflected Ryan Christie effort, and a Jozo Simunovic header from a Christie corner.

However, despite Ntcham only having direct involvement in one goal, it was him who these Celtic fans were gushing over.

What do we think?

Celtic were superb, and the 24-year-old midfielder, who is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, received a 7/10 rating from 67hailhail and can be pleased with his goal that started the rout.

What should please Celtic fans more is that Rangers were beaten 2-1 by Kilmarnock and now have a huge gap to close to prevent the Bhoys from winning the title.
