Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Charly Musonda after he came off the bench to help the Hoops win 1-0 against Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Brendan Rodgers caused quite a stir when he axed Musonda, 21, from his starting line-up ahead of kick-off with Callum McGregor coming in to start in his place.
The Belgian attacker had not been in the best of form in his last two outings for the Bhoys but wasted no time in having an impact at Parkhead against the Russians when he played a major role in McGregor’s winner.
Musonda played a beautiful ball into the Scotland international to earn his first assist in green and white, resulting in McGregor smashing home a brilliant winning goal.
Celtic fans completely lost their minds with the Belgian’s impact and took to Twitter to express their delight, with one saying that he’s in “tears” over the attacker’s display.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Charly Musonda is some boy

Musonda signed for Celtic on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea in the January transfer window.
Belgian news outlet HLN reported that the attacking midfielder is earning £40,000-a-week in his current deal at Stamford Bridge.
In other Celtic news, Rangers-mad Jim White has made a bold claim in the debate surrounding this Hoops senior man.
