Moi Elyounoussi remains fond of his loan spell at Celtic, telling the Irish press he still supports and follows the Bhoys.

Elyounoussi was in Ireland this week with the Norwegian national team and told journalists he got a reminder of Celtic while he was in town, due to all the tricolours around the place.

“There is the kind of connection when you see the Irish flag because that is something you saw everywhere in Celtic,” he told The Irish Times.

On the subject of his time at the Bhoys, Elyounoussi had nothing but good things to say, continuing: “I had a really good time, it was a period where I needed to play games, get confidence again and find myself.

“I think I certainly did that in Celtic. The size of the club, the fans, everything was brilliant, and it is still a club I am following and watch and support.”

Elyounoussi made 67 appearances in total for Celtic, scoring a healthy 24 goals, as well as assisting 14 times.

He became a popular player with supporters even though his second season, under lockdown, became a nightmare for everyone involved.

Since then he’s found form with Southampton too, becoming a regular in their team and scoring eight goals in all competitions last term.

His travels to Ireland this week worked out well for him too, playing the entire 90 minutes of a 2-1 win over the home team.
