Celtic have announced a signing out of the blue, and it is an interesting one. The Hoops have announced the signing of Southampton winger Mohamed Elyounoussi on a season-long loan deal.

Unfortunately the deal does not have an option to buy at the end of the season. However, the move is certainly an exciting one by Celtic.
Hoops look to be all out attack this season
It confirms that Neil Lennon won’t be afraid to attack this season. The Hoops have already scored plenty of goals this season. The signing of Elyounoussi could only add to that.
Unsurprisingly, fans on social media were thrilled with the signing. One claimed that it was a ‘great signing’.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to the latest Celtic signing:

The big question that will be the minds of Celtic fans is will the player make his debut for the Hoops against Rangers on Sunday?
Could make debut at Ibrox
You would not bet against Neil Lennon starting the player. After all, he reportedly cost Southampton £16 million. You don’t keep those kind of players on the bench.
Should Elyounoussi help lead Celtic to a win at Ibrox, it will have to go down as one of the best Celtic debuts in a long time.
The last few days of the transfer window has certainly got exciting for Celtic fans. It will be interesting to see if the Hoops make more signings before the transfer window closes.
