THIS marvellous image captures perfectly the constrasting emotions of a nerve-shredding Glasgow derby.
Mohamed Elyounoussi celebrates in his usual fashion after scoring with his emphatic effort to give Celtic a deserved advantage in last month’s encounter at Parkhead.
While the Norwegian poses happily following his full-length diving header which ripped past Allan McGregor, take a look over the attacker’s right shoulder. The dejected figure of Steven Gerrard can be seen looking on ruefully from his place on the touchline.
It’s a moment of reflection from the Govan gaffer who may even have been impressed by the athleticism and daredevil antics of the on-loan Hoops star as he took off Superman-style to beat his defender Filip Helander to bullet in a fine left-wing cross from Odsonne Edouard.
PICK IT OUT…Mohamed Elyounoussi runs away in celebration after his goal left Allan McGregor and Filip Helander grounded.
And no wonder Elyounoussi looked happy – unfortunately, his strike has been the club’s only goal in three encounters with Gerrard’s team during a wretched campaign.
However, there is still silverware up for grabs and the Norwegian is likely to get the opportunity to again display his penalty-box prowess in the Scottish Cup fourth round tie at Ibrox today.
And, possibly, bring another frown to the face of an onlooking Govan gaffer.
