Mohamed Elyounoussi suggests one disappointment after Celtic win

Mohamed Elyounoussi has suggested to Celtic’s official website that he is slightly disappointed that the Hoops could not score more goals in their victory over Hamilton Academical at the weekend.

Elyounoussi was handed the chance to make his debut for the Bhoys having arrived on loan from Southampton in the summer. And it did not take long for the winger to show glimpses of why the Saints decided to pay £17 million for him one year ago (fee reported by BBC Sport).

It was the Norway international who provided the assist for the game’s only goal as he slid in James Forrest in the first four minutes.

Elyounoussi looked bright for the rest of the game – particularly during the rest of the first-half – but Celtic could not quite add to their tally.

BBC Sport shows that Celtic had another 11 attempts on goal, but only managed to put one more on target. The Hoops rarely looked to be in any danger of squandering their lead, but Neil Lennon may well have wanted his side to make the points safe sooner.

And Elyounoussi seemed to admit after the victory that not scoring more was his one disappointment from his Celtic debut as he suggested that the supporters deserved to see more goals.

“I wish we could have given the fans more goals. They were brilliant throughout the whole game, I thought they were amazing. We’re happy to get the three-points though, that’s the most important thing,” he told the club’s official website.

It is important that the Bhoys continue to pick up the three points in these games. They sent out a massive statement against Rangers before the international break, but that could have left them somewhat vulnerable for their next game.

Had they taken Accies lightly after such a brilliant performance, they could have been punished. It was not a display that will live long in the memory, but it was very much a case of job done for Lennon’s men.

And Elyounoussi will be hoping that it proves to be the first of many occasions where he makes a game-changing impact while he is at Parkhead.
