Twitter reacts to Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton's wondergoal for Israel

The midfielder struck an absolute worldy for Israel v Cyprus yesterday.

Wales are through to the European Championships in France next summer - despite losing today 2-0 against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

That was thanks to Israel going down 2-1 at home to Cyprus. Goals from Dossa Junior and a winning strike from Walsall full-back Jason Demetriou.

Celtic fans however will be pleased with who scored in between.

It was their towering midfielder Nir Bitton who bagged the goal and it was a classic Bitton strike.

The central-midfielder picked up the ball in the centre-left of the field before smashing home a ferocious strike from distance.

Celtic fans know too well that when Bitton scores it is usually special but they might not be so keen on him catching the eye on the international field. His performance is likely to attract even more suitors for a player who has previously been linked with moves to the Premier League.

Fans of Israel and Celtic - not to mention neutrals - were clearly impressed and shared their thoughts on Twitter:
