There is little doubt who is the Celtic fans’ favourite player at the moment. That man is Odsonne Edouard. His recent goal in the 2-0 win over Rangers was just another example of his goalscoring talent, that he has shown on a regular basis for the Hoops.

However, some fans may not remember that it all started for Edouard in a game against Hamilton back in 2017. At that time Edouard had been signed on a loan deal from PSG, and not much was known about him, except that he looked to be a very promising talent.

He showed that talent in his debut, scoring for the Hoops in a 4-1 win. Since then, he has not looked back, and he is at the moment arguably Celtic’s most important player.


There is a chance that lightning could strike twice and another Celtic newcomer could have a notable debut against Hamilton.

The two players who seem most likely to make their first appearances for the Hoops in the game are Greg Taylor and Mohamed Elyounoussi.

To be fair to Taylor, it is not often that a full-back has a notable debut, so it is more likely that Elyounoussi could be the player who makes an impact.

With Mikey Johnston out, there is a place in the side that has opened up for the on loan Southampton attacker. This seems like the ideal game for him to make his Hoops debut.

He has not been away on international duty, and will have had the chance to work all week with his new team-mates.

Another factor to take in is that Elyounoussi‘s loan deal does not have an option to buy at the end of it. Therefore, the Hoops will want to play him in as many games as possible, as soon as possible.

Therefore, it seems like a good time to give Elyounoussi his Celtic debut. Lets’ hope that it is as notable as Edouard’s debut was.
