Celtic fans react on Twitter to Eboue Kouassi performance in win v Zenit
Celtic supporters have given massive praise to Eboue Kouassi for his performance against Zenit in the Europa League on Thursday night, which the Hoops won 1-0.
The 20-year-old was an unexpected starter against the Russian side, as he has been in and out of the side since joining the Hoops from Krasnodar last year.
The Ivorian controlled the midfield in a manner which impressed fans on social media, until he was replaced by Charly Musonda after 72 minutes.
Here are the best reactions from Twitter to Kouassi’s performance:
Kouassi proving why he’s the one lined up to replace Brown! Superb performance tonight!

As for the match itself, the first two chances of the game fell to the Hoops, Ntcham taking a Dembele pass and poking a shot just past the post, and McGregor shooting straight into the goalkeeper’s arms from a good position.
Zenit then had an excellent chance to take the lead, but de Vries saved Zabolotny’s close range effort.
The Hoops dominated the rest of the first-half, but were unable to create anything apart from half-chances, and the half ended goalless.
The Hoops continued to dominate the game in the second-half, but again no real chances were created until McGregor deservedly gave the Hoops the lead in the 78th minute.
