Nearly all of Brendan Rodgers' Celtic signings have been successes, but Eboue Kouassi is so far proving an exception.

The 19-year-old signed for Celtic on a long-term contract back in January, but has struggled to make an impression so far.

His time at Celtic has been plagued by injuries and this season he has barely featured.

Eboue Kouassi of Celtic is seen during a Celtic training session at Lennoxtown Training Centre near Glasgow on March 9, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Prior to the weekend his only appearance was a substitute showing in the League Cup, so it was a big boost to see him get over an hour's action in the weekend's win over Dundee.

Kouassi was delighted to be back playing, and sent a message expressing his excitement last night.

Kouassi is unlikely to figure in Celtic's Champions League game against Bayern Munich this week, but simply having him back available makes the squad stronger.

Fans were pleased to see the teenager back playing again, and responded to Kouassi's message with encouraging sentiments.
