Last night, fans were given a glimpse of what summer signing Giorgos Giakoumakis can bring to Ange Postecoglou’s side – particularly in Europe.
Although the Greek striker wasn’t on the scoresheet after being introduced into the game on the 70 minutes alongside James Forrest and Mikey Johnston, he brought a different aspect to the game.
The 26-year old is a much more physical option in the final third, which was key to seeing the game out and securing all three points.
At times, he held up the ball well and was very clever in his play to buy Celtic some time by winning free-kicks off Ferencvaros defenders.
This is arguably something we have been missing in Europe for several years.
Of course, it was brilliant to see Kyogo in action with his fantastic ability, which played a massive part in the goals. But it was also good to see another side to our game on the road in Europe.
Given Saturday’s disappointment with the late penalty miss, Giakoumakis will likely have to build his confidence back up again.
He might not have done that in front of goal, but I think within some sections of the support, he showed last night what he could offer for Ange Postecoglou.
