Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Charly Musonda for his performance on loan at Celtic on Thursday night.
Musonda, 21, came off the bench to assist the winning goal as the Scottish champions beat Zenit St Petersburg 1-0 at Celtic Park in the Europa League last-32.
The Belgian attacker signed for the Hoops on loan from Chelsea in the January transfer window, but in his first three appearances for the Scots he had done little to impress.
Brendan Rodgers axed him to the bench ahead of the game against Zenit, but after he was introduced towards the end, he had an immediate impact by playing in a lovely pass to Callum McGregor, who slammed home the winner at the back post.
Chelsea fans have now been questioning their club’s policy of allowing players to leave Stamford Bridge after Musonda’s five-star cameo appearance against Zenit.
One Blues supporter claimed that the Rangers and Chelsea loyal must be “proper conflicted” by the Belgian’s performance at Parkhead, while another wants the Premier League champions to terminate his deal in Glasgow and recall him.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Musonda has made four appearances for Celtic since moving north of the border on an 18-month loan.
He has only ever made seven appearances in the Chelsea senior squad – all of which have come this season across the Premier League, Community Shield, Europa League and EFL Cup.
In other Celtic news, Rangers-mad Jim White has made a bold claim in the debate surrounding this Hoops senior man.
