The 22-year-old Frenchman enjoyed a breakout campaign in Glasgow during the 2017/18 campaign and cemented himself as one of Brendan Rodgers trusted midfield lieutenants, but he’s not quite made the grade to be included in the SPFL’s top XI.

The beaks at Hampden have instead opted for a five-man midfield comprised of Hibs pair Dylan McGeouch and John McGinn alongside Scott Brown in the centre of the pitch, with James Forrest and Jordan Jones on the wings.
Kris Boyd is played in a lone striker role too in another controversial decision but the decision to leave Ntcham on the sidelines has definitely rubbed a few Hoops fan up the wrong way:
They're never going to keep everyone happy, but Mulumbu, Candeias and Ntcham feel like particularly egregious omissions… https://t.co/cWTpzkGkYe

You’re right…. should be Ntcham

Both ntcham and mcgregor should be in that team

Can’t really argue with that team other than ntcham for one of the hibs midfielders

Ntcham and ajer?

Only one or two noticeable wrong decisions here. I’d have Ntcham somewhere in the midfield, and fellow Killie fans can bite my head off if they want, but I think Candeias has been better than JJ this year. Also think O’Donnell should be at RB. That’s all. https://t.co/RWNEVOTEH8

How Ntcham didn't get in over McGinn or McGeoch is beyond me too…

Wrong, no Ntcham or Dembele. Do it again. https://t.co/4FCe3WO09n

He scored nine goals in all competitions, including a crucial strike in last weekend’s Scottish Cup final, but should he have made team of the year?
Who could he replace?
