The January signing from Krasnodar pulled on a Celtic shirt for the first time at the Orian Training Centre as a first half shot from Josh Kerr gave Celtic victory over the table toppers in the Development League.
Shortly after joining Celtic Eboue was treated for a mild outbreak of malaria which delayed his debut but with an hour of action today he’ll be pushing towards a first team debut which is likely to be at some stage in the home match against Hamilton Accies next Saturday.
Just past the half hour mark Celtic notched the only goal of the game thanks to Kerr who is a constant goal threat from set-pieces.
Regan Hendry replaced Eboue on the hour mark with Celtic holding onto their lead despite some heavy pressure from Hibs in the closing stages with Conor Hazard pulling off a couple of outstanding saves.
CELTIC: Hazard; Ralston, Wardrop, Kerr, McIlduff; Hill, Kouassi (Hendry); Archibald, Thomson, Miller; Aitchison
SUBS: McAdams, Welsh, Crossan, Johnston, Duffy, Bell.
