Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl insists he was delighted to see Moi Elyounoussi score a double for Celtic in Europa League action yesterday evening.

The Norwegian attacker netted a stunning brace to earn Celts a draw with Lille, despite taking a 2-0 lead into the second-half. The Hoops were never certain to be able to entice Elyounoussi back to Parkhead beyond the current loan spell from Saints, but Hassenhuttl has hinted he's willing to give the playmaker a chance in the Premier League next season.

The manager claims he keeps a close eye on all top stars out on loan and he was watching with a keen eye. "I am very deeply invested in what my loan players do and I am very happy for [Elyounoussi] that he scored and I am happy to see it," said the Austrian manager.

"And, definitely, the player has a chance to maybe come back in and to be a part of the team, maybe next year."

Elyounoussi has been handed a starring role at Celtic this season, playing 20 games in all competitions already, scoring eight goals.

He has been used as a winger at times but in recent weeks the player has played just off Albian Ajeti as a secondary striking option.
