Celtic unleash their £16 million loan star Mo Elyounoussi on Hamilton today and what a promising performance, such a great debut from the Norwegian after creating the first and only goal of the game.
Lennon will be happy with the vital three points and maybe we should have scored a few more but winning is the most important thing, also Mo Elyounoussi had a great game until he came off for the return fan favorite Tom Rogic.
Celtic fans got to see the fast paced powerhouse steaming up and down the pitch for the first time since his arrival from Southampton on loan, and fans like what they see.
With Mikey Johnston injured Elyounoussi was given a starting place on the left with his low driven cross converted as Celtic dominated the early exchanges.
The new bhoy linked effortlessly with his new team-mates but just as Celtic dropped the tempo around the half hour mark so to did the loan signing.
‘Getting minutes in their legs’ has been a favoured saying from Neil Lennon in the early stages of the season with Tom Rogic replacing Elyounoussi in the 67th minute.
Lennon can now assess the reaction of the Norwegian internationalist but it wouldn’t be a surprise if Olivier Ntcham came into the midfield against Rennes on Thursday with Elyounoussi starting on the bench.
