The Celtic faithful were delighted with the 23-year-old's short debut.
Nadir Ciftci may have divided opinion in the build-up to his Celtic move but, now that the Turkish forward is a Bhoy, fans of the Scottish champions appear to be getting right behind him.
So much so that there is already talk of the summer signing being a better option up front as a lone striker than Leigh Griffiths.
Indeed, Ronny Deila's praise of Ciftci after he came on during Friday night's 1-0 friendly win over Real Sociedad spoke volumes, with the boss suggesting he is in with a chance of a Champions League start against Stjarnan.
Could Griffiths have something to worry about in the short term? Some on Twitter are intrigued by the threat Ciftci already poses, having shown promising signs against David Moyes' men.
Griffiths scored 20 goals last season and now (apparently) is on the verge of losing his place to Ciftci after just one game? #Ouch— Calum Crowe (@CalumCrowe10) July 11, 2015
Of course, the other option for Celtic is to play both up front, with Ciftci clearly adding plenty for the Bhoys. His quality isn't exactly bad news for the Hoops.
Griffiths, though, who also looked good against Sociedad, will want to remind people he was the club's top scorer last term. For Ciftci is stealing a bit of the limelight, according to Celtic fans on Twitter...
@Celtic_Vines Ciftci looks like he realises how big a chance he has and looks well up for it— Barry lopez (@SEABAZ80) July 11, 2015
Really impressed by Ciftci last night. I think he's better as the one man up front than Griffiths.— Bigirishmc (@Bigirishcelt) July 11, 2015
Yes,just a friendly,but the understanding between GMS and Ciftci,as well as Armstrong,suggests Ciftci will play a big part in CL Q's.— Holy Sea (@DM8883) July 11, 2015

Ciftci had his moments playing against Celtic but like all new arrivals he deserves the chance to show what he can do pic.twitter.com/SBs5ZihqcA— Lisbon Lion (@tirnaog09) July 11, 2015
Thoughts from last night.We must keep hold of Bitton & Big Ciftci looks like he'll bust a gut for the jersey - good reception from the fans!— claire mcnair (@_clarabella__) July 11, 2015
Good second half from Celtic and dare I say it Ciftci made an impact, he's a celt now and I'll get behind him as all who pull on the hoops— JINKS1888 Geo (@bimmerbhoy) July 11, 2015
