Celtic winger Mohammed Elyounoussi scored two goals as the Hoops won a thrilling League Cup semi-final against Hibernian 5-2 at Hampden Park yesterday.
The Norwegian international cannot stop scoring at the moment, and supporters on Twitter are all calling on the club to make the Southampton loanee’s move to Celtic Park a permanent one:

Announce 5 year deal

Manager Neil Lennon said before last night’s win against Hibs that a bid for Elyounoussi is not currently in the works despite his good form.
The Hoops boss praised the 25-year-old’s start to life in Scottish football but said he had not yet done enough to justify a permanent switch and there are major question marks over the finances of the deal.
Elyounoussi cost Southampton £16m, and considering how well he has been playing for the Scottish champions, they are likely to maintain a high asking price for him. Could Celtic come up with funds? We shall have to wait and see.
