Scottish Premiership star Andy Halliday has insisted that Adam Idah’s performance for Celtic was more than just the brace he scored against Motherwell on Sunday.


Idah has made a big impact since joining Celtic from Norwich City on loan in January and has essentially won Brendan Rodgers’ men two games.


The forward scored twice in the second half against Motherwell to help Celtic come from behind to win all three points on the road over the weekend.




Halliday, who watched from the stands as part of the Motherwell camp, insisted that the performance had more meat than just the two goals Idah scored for the Glasgow giants.


He stressed that the striker brought in all aspects of centre-forward play to continually create problems for the Motherwell defence and had an outstanding effect in the second half.



The midfielder said on Clyde 1’s Superscoreboard: “He came in and in such a short space of time, he has won them games.


“I thought yesterday was more than just two goals, I thought his overall contribution to the game – his hold-up play, willingness to run in behind, putting the shoulder up against centre-haves, pin people, roll them, spin them and create chances for others.



“His overall performance in that 45 minutes was exceptional.”


It remains to be seen whether Idah gets a start when Celtic host sixth-placed Dundee at Parkhead on Wednesday night.
