The video clip barely captured the goal but it did record forever the question of one Celtic fan.
Given a free kick right in front of goal from 20 yards out Celtic have a few options to take the strike.
Leigh Griffiths has notched a few of his 100 plus goals from free-kicks but at Hamilton yesterday the Scotland striker took a back seat for a French masterclass.

It was an exceptional strike from Odsonne Edouard, there was nothing that the defensive wall or the keeper could have done when the ball is struck that way.
The away fans had to wait until well into the second half to have something to celebrate but when it arrived it was well worthwhile.
Griffiths had sent a free-kick off the crossbar, Accies defenders had blocked almost every cross into the box but in the 78th minute Chris Jullien timed his run perfectly to send a front post shot across the keeper into the net.
Edouard and James Forrest added to the scoreline in the last ten minutes to ensure full points and a seven point gap at the top of the SPFL Premiership as Neil Lennon prepares his side for Wednesday’s trip to Motherwell.
