Chris Sutton has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Celtic manager Neil Lennon’s response to Olivier Ntcham’s recent comments about Scottish football.
According to BBC Sport, Celtic midfielder Ntcham recently said that the Scottish Premiership is not challenging enough for the him.
The French midfielder also expressed his disappointment at not joining FC Porto last season, and said that he is flattered by interest from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille.
Celtic manager Lennon has criticised the 23-year-old midfielder for his recent comments, and former Hoops striker Sutton, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport and BT Sport, has backed the Glasgow giants’ boss.
Neil Lennon quite right to call out Olivier Ntcham… for a league Ntcham found as “not challenging enough” last season he was bang average. Ntcham would be better served to let his football do the talking… he is not a £15 million player based on what we saw last season… https://t.co/x3k830WFWU

Ntcham has been on the books of Celtic since the summer of 2017 when he joined from a Premier League club Manchester City for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £4.5 million.
The 23-year-old played well for the Hoops in his debut season in 2017-18, but the French midfielder did not have a good campaign on a personal level in 2018-19.
