Celtic’s European Hangover Cured, says Elyounoussi

Mohamed Elyounoussi claims Celtic stars were fired up before taking on Aberdeen, to make sure they don’t feel the effects of a so-called European Hangover.

The Celts sailed to a four-star win, against the Dons, to add to their victory against Lazio.

Neil Lennon’s outfit fell to Livingston 2-0, after the last European win against Cluj, in the infamous hangover.

The Celtic ace said: “It was a nice win. We played well against Lazio on Thursday night but remembered what happened the last time after a European win when we lost at Livingston.

“Every team in the league wants to win against Celtic. Every game is tough.

“Aberdeen had fresh legs and we knew it would be difficult.

“The Livingston match was in the back of our heads but we just wanted to win and do our best. We wanted to show a reaction and that was a 
professional performance.

“We carried out our game plan and executed it well. We scored nice goals and controlled it.”

He added: “The first half performance is up there at the top, as well as Ross County. Both were good games and we just tried to do our best to please everyone and get the win.

“We created some chances, we scored quick goals and in the second half we wanted
it more.

“But Aberdeen are a tough team, they fought well and we are happy with the three points

“Offensively, we have some good players and we showed some good combinations.

“Tom Rogic came in and was brilliant against Aberdeen.

“He found me twice for two of the goals.

“The confidence and the team spirit is really good at 
the moment.”
