Video: Faissal El Bakhtaoui Scores Wonder Goal v Celtic

Faissal El Bakhtaoui made quite the impact after being thrown on as a second-half substitute by Dundee manager Paul Hartley.

The Moroccan striker has had to settle for coming off the bench for the majority of this season after finding it difficult to adjust from life in League One with Dunfermline last term.

That’s nothing to be ashamed of – it’s a big difference playing against the likes of Stranraer, Brechin City and Ayr to coming up against Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen.

But El Bakhtaoui has shown a little bit of the ability that made him such an attractive proposition to Hartley in the first place.

Nipping past Dedryck Boyata in the centre of the park, the pacy attacker went straight for the centre of the Celtic defender before belting a 25-yard shot beyond Craig Gordon:

It’s given Dundee the chance to get themselves back into the game after going 2-0 down to goals from Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong.
