Image for Video: Watch Moi Elyounoussi’s brilliant goal against Lyon

Moi Elyounoussi provided Celtic fans with the highlight of tonight’s 2-1 defeat away to Lyon.

The on loan winger was one of 10 changes that Neil Lennon made after an hour as he sent on his A team for some vital match practice.

James Forrest knocked the ball on to Elyounoussi who showed great composure to cut inside from the left, wait for his moment then fire his 86th minute effort into the Lyon net.

It had been tough going for an inexperienced Celtic side through the first half with Moussa Dembele heading a fourth minute opener before Memphis Depay doubled the lead with a classic near post flick of his heel.

Celtic did have some moments with Karamoko Dembele and Patryk Klimala running at the Lyon defence.

Late in the first half Celtic were awarded a penalty but VAR reduced it to a free kick on the edge of the box that Nir Bitton struck into the defensive wall.

CELTIC: Bain; Elhamed, Bitton, Welsh, Bolingoli; Soro, Robertson; Karamoko, Ntcham, Henderson, Klimala

SUBS: Doohan, Hazard, Jullien, Taylor, Brown, Christie, Edouard, Elyounoussi, Connell, Frimpong, Ajer, McGregor, Forrest, McInroy
