Celtic will face Rangers in the cup final on December 8th and one player can’t wait to taste the atmosphere of a derby final, and possibly win his first trophy in the Green And White Hoops.
Elyounoussi has come onto some very hot form over the past few months and must get a start against Rangers on cup final day, a player that can can rip them apart if he’s on his game, its quite scary to think of the squad Celtic have at the moment, every single player on a good day could score 4 or 5 past most teams.
But as we all know from past new and old derby games, you can’t take anything for granted and Lennon will have to get the Celtic squad well prepared for this fixture and tactics will be key, majority of the Celtic support are quietly confident though.
The Southampton loanee deserves his place among the starting line up and he can’t wait for the day to come, with Celtic playing Rangers twice it would be a psychological blow to Rangers if Celtic were to thrash them in both games.
But Elyounoussi says that he has heard the atmosphere during the games, and he cannot wait to take to the pitch for Celtic against their main rivals.
“The League Cup Final is a chance to win some silverware early in the season and I can’t wait for this game,” the impressive Celtic loanee said.
“I watched the first Old Firm game of the season and the atmosphere was amazing.
“It’s something I really want to experience so I’m really looking forward to this game.”
Elyounoussi has really grown into his role at Celtic now, with the Norwegian impressing for Neil Lennon’s side.
