OLIVIER Ntcham last night stressed he has no intention of leaving Celtic and is fully committed to helping the Parkhead club enjoy further domestic and European success this season.

Ntcham fuelled speculation that he might move back in July when he admitted he was disappointed that interest from Porto didn’t amount to anything and had been flattered to be linked with Marseille.

But the French midfielder, who scored an injury-time winner against Lazio in Rome last month, revealed he is content in Glasgow now and looking forward to the remainder of the season.

Neil Lennon’s side take on Rangers, who they are level on points with at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership, in the Betfred Cup on Sunday and will play in the last 32 of the Europa League next year.

Ntcham, who missed the 4-1 win over Ross County in Dingwall on Sunday with an injury, is keen to be a part of the treble treble winners’ forthcoming matches.

“I am focused on Celtic 150 percent,” said Ntcham. “I am focused on working hard every day in training and on the pitch. I am not spending my time looking around.

“There was talk about my future, but I am fully concentrated on the present. You never know what happens in football tomorrow, but I want to enjoy my time today.

“It’s a very exciting time at Celtic. There are a lot of games but if we win them it will be even more exciting. We are used to winning but we are still hungry in every single game.

“I am feeling good. I still think I need a few more games to be at my best but I am going in the right direction. I think there is a lot more to come because I’m not quite fully fit just yet, in terms of matches. I am enjoying playing though.”
