Celtic gained revenge for their Champions League defeat to Cluj by beating the same opponent in the Europa League at Celtic Park on Thursday evening, and after the match fans poured onto social media to praise a big man in the win.

The Bhoys were dumped out of the elite European competition by the Romanians earlier in the campaign, but they ensured there would be no repeat of that shock result, when the two sides met in Glasgow for the second time this term.

After gaining a point from their opening match in the group in Rennes a couple of weeks ago, Celtic were well placed ahead of the match against Cluj, and the victory they picked up sent them to the summit, ahead of a tasty double header with Lazio after the next international break.

The Bhoys got off to a perfect start in front of their own fans on Thursday evening, when star of the season so far, Odsonne Edouard, converted a wonderfully created opportunity to fire the Glasgow giants into the lead.

Celtic had to wait until the hour mark to make the game safe however. Morocco international Mohamed Elyounoussi picked a perfect time to score his first goal since arriving from Southampton in the summer, to near enough wrap up the three points for the Scottish champions, and send them top of the group.

There were plenty of good performances in Bhoys shirts against their Romanian foe, but it was Edouard who received most of the love on social media after the match.

His goals have been a huge fixture for Celtic already this season, and you suspect there are plenty more to come from a man who has rapidly become a fan favourite at Celtic Park in his time in Glasgow.

Here are some of the posts from Bhoys supporters after the game:
