The Frenchman, who completed a record deal to sign for the club from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, hit a stunning goal at Celtic Park to the open the scoring in a 4-1 win over the Belgians.

Collecting a pass on the edge of the box from Callum McGregor the 20-year-old shifted the ball away from a defender before sending a looping effort into the top corner, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance. The goal was so special some in the crowd celebrated it as if it was in a competitive fixture.

The strike follows on from Edouard’s goal against Armenian’s Alashkert in Celtic’s 3-0 win in the first-round of Champions League qualifying.

The match against Standard was Celtic’s last organised friendly before continuing their quest to reach the Champions League group stages. McGregor, Moussa Dembele and Mikey Johnston were the other goalscorers in the win.
