    Left every inch of his soul on that pitch last night.

    If ever I was desperate for a player to get a "big goal" it's this guy.

    Work rate is phenomenal, attitude is phenomenal, dedication is top drawer.

    Finally, a Celtic no.7 to be proud of.

    Big man done well last night.

    That Militao seemed to panic whenever Giako closed him down. Think it was him that slipped on his * as well when Giako could have took a touch and got a shot off, another what could have been moment. It was a class layoff though tbf same with the one for McGregor.

    No sure if I’d start him or Kyogo in Shakhtar now. I keep getting flashbacks of the counter attacking goals vs Alkmaar, Ferencvaros and Leverkusen last season though and Kyogo played a massive part in them so leaning towards him, with Giako getting the nod vs Livi.

    Definitely a physical threat with bravery to match. Considering it's such a close call between him and Kyogo, they should be rotated every other game.

    It was his pressing. Looked quicker than I've ever seen him..

    Was full pelt from the halfway line towards theor keeper when he had the ball and gave Militao bother all first half..

    He done that much graft that we honestly didn't miss Kyogo’s press. Was like for like and they're completely different types of player's..

    Unlucky no to have 2 assists as well..

    A ball hair away tbh. He will be gutted as he’s an incredible finisher normally.

    I fully expect him to bag 20 this season all in.

    Has to at least hit the target there, tried to be too precise when he had so much time & space.

    Good when he came on but he absolutely needs to be burying that chance he had.

    Not long since I posted here, but I think it’s important to remember he came on with 22 minutes to go, made an opportunity and somehow created time and space (which is a gift - it’s not luck) and if I’m honest I don’t think he did much wrong either with the chance.

    its not like he skied the * thing. He actually struck it beautifully and tried to curl it in to top corner.

    Others would have snatched at it, not had the instinctive awareness to even SEE or visualise the top corner. I’d far rather see that than some snap shot pish scuffed towards a keeper or wide. Which I fear maeda would have.

    The guy is lethal - another day it rifles in and we are waxing lyrical. We are talking inches.

    He has my utmost confidence, and in 18 months he will be going for big money.
