‘Thought He Was Excellent’ ‘Offered Something Different’ Fans Excited After Celtic Ace’s Cameo Performance

Celtic forward Giorgos Giakoumakis made only his third appearance for the Hoops in the 2-0 win over Ferencvaros.

The Greek international has experienced fitness issues since arriving from VVV Venlo for £2.5m in the summer, but he played 20 minutes on Tuesday afternoon. His performance impressed a number of fans on Twitter:

Giakoumakis does seem to be able to hold up the ball pretty well and he looks like he is decent when he gets a chance to shoot at goal.

The main objective for the 26-year-old is to stay fit. Reports in recent days have suggested that it has been a real struggle to get him into top shape but, hopefully, he will be ready to start a game very soon.

It will be interesting to see whether Giakoumakis is handed a place in the first eleven by manager Ange Postecoglou when Celtic take on St Johnstone at Parkhead this weekend.
