Mohamed Elyounoussi found the back of the net once again for Celtic on Wednesday night.
The Norwegian winger opened the scoring as the Hoops defeated St Mirren 2-0, further aiding them in their pursuit of yet another Scottish Premiership title.
Elyounoussi has been a big hit since arriving at Celtic, and he has quickly endeared himself to the club’s supporters.
Following a dismal first year on English soil with Southampton under both Mark Hughes and Ralph Hasenhuttl, the 25-year-old is in confident mood and is influencing games for his new team.
These Celtic fans can’t get enough of Elyounoussi and are keen to see the Hoops pursue a permanent deal as soon as possible…

Read Southampton’s verdict
Elyounoussi was excellent for Basel, terrible for Saints, and is looking excellent once again for Celtic.
Is Southampton the place where talented players now stagnate, rather than take the next step, or is Elyounoussi simply better suited to playing for top teams in lesser leagues?
There are plenty of unanswered questions surrounding the winger’s capabilities, but he’s looking at home for Celtic.
He’s been a very good signing for them, and it’d be a surprise if they don’t push to sign him permanently either in January or next summer.
