Frank McAvennie has heaped praise on Celtic duo Mohamed Elyounoussi and claimed he is “like a new signing” after his Tuesday wonder show.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Jason Jones, the former Parkhead striker claimed that the on-loan winger and teammate Hatem Abd Elhamed were “pretty awesome” in the 6-0 Champions League qualifying win.
Elyounoussi opened the scoring in the 6th minute before capping off the rout deep into stoppage time, while Elhamed provided the assist for Greg Taylor’s headed effort.
The goals were Elyounoussi’s first of the season, and McAvennie has suggested that he looks like a player transformed for Neil Lennon’s men.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Elyounoussi was like a new signing.
“He’s back in the side and he was wonderful. His runs in behind were tremendous. Elyounoussi last night was superb.
