Cameroonian midfielder Olivier Ntcham has summed up his decisive goal in the Old Firm Derby as a ‘special moment’ in his career.

The 22-year-old player’s second-half goal secured a thoroughly-deserved 1-0 win for Celtic in the Scottish Premier League game at the Celtic Park and capped off another impressive performance from the youngster.

“It was a very nice game to play in and to win it was fantastic,” Ntcham, who was born in France to parents of Cameroonian descent, told the club’s official website.

“The atmosphere was very special too. The fans were amazing and I think they knew a goal was coming from the way we were playing.

“We played very well and I think given the way we played we deserved to win the game. We created some very good chances and we could have scored some goals.”

Ntcham’s goal was his fourth competitive goal of the season so far. The Hoops midfielder scored nine during the Double Treble campaign and looks likely to surpass that given his strong start to the season.

“It’s a special moment, it’s always special to score against this team so it’s good. It’s been a very good start for me personally and, thankfully, I’ve been able to help the team,” he said.

“It’s been a good end to the week. Our performance has improved with each game and we are feeling very positive and happy.

“To end the week like we have is nice. To have three points is excellent, especially going into the international break.”

The 2018/19 Scottish Premiership Highlights show will be televised on Fox Sports 1 tonight (Thursday, September 6) at 20h30 CAT.
