The 25-year-old incurred a foot injury on international duty for Norway in November and, barring an abortive appearance in the Betfred Cup final, he has been sidelined for almost all of the last three months. However, as reported by the Daily Record, he is available for tonight’s Premiership clash away to Motherwell, against whom he made his last league appearance in a 2-0 home win in November.
Elyounoussi, who joined on loan from Southampton in late August, had been in flying form prior to his injury, with seven goals and six assists in 13 appearances for the club so far. That included a five-game streak in the autumn in which he found the net six times. His return to the fold has also come just a few days after fellow left winger Mikey Johnston suffered a suspected knee ligament injury that looks set to keep him out of action for some time (as per BBC).
These Celtic fans on Twitter rejoiced at the news of Elyounoussi’s impending return to the fold:
Now that is good news.
