Olivier Ntcham signs new Celtic contract to 2022

Celtic's Olivier Ntcham celebrates scoring his side's third goal of the game

Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until at least the summer of 2022.

The Frenchman, who was signed from Manchester City in the summer of 2017, has made a big impact at Parkhead.

He has scored 14 goals in 68 games and was on target from distance in the Scottish Cup final win over Motherwell last season, as Celtic won the treble for the second time in a row.

Ntcham notched the only goal of the game in a 1-0 defeat of Rangers in September.

"It's good news and I hope we're going to win more trophies. It's a great side and I'm glad to be part of the project.

"Having a strong bond with the players is very important for the team, and for the club.
