Vakoun Issouf Bayo has scored again for Toulouse tonight, making it two goals in three games. The Celtic striker is on loan in France’s Ligue 2 and is due to return to Paradise if the option to buy is not taken up on him. Bayo arrives with a striker’s finish at the back post, showing a killer instinct as Toulouse won 3-0 to retain their position of third, meaning they will win promotion to Ligue 1.

Injuries hampered his progress in Glasgow with the 24-year-old missing preseason before returning to fitness in time to sign for the Ligue 2 side. The player was clearly not a Brendan Rodgers signing, which meant that he wasn’t integrated into the first team when he arrived. Injuries and a lack of match fitness meant that Neil Lennon didn’t have a chance to fully utilise him; however, Lennon appeared to give him a chance but Bayo didn’t appear a better option than Griffiths or Edouard.
