Brendan Rodgers has had a hard time getting Celtic to score from penalties this season, but he may finally have a solution.

Signing by the due date Adam Idah started last night’s game against Hibernian for the first time since coming on loan from Norwich City for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old was once again very important for the Bhoys at Easter Road, scoring twice from the penalty spot to earn a dramatic win for his team. This came after an impressive cameo at Pittodrie over the weekend, where he set up a goal.

People will rightly praise his overall play as a lone forward. Based on Fotmob, Idah got an average match grade of 8.8/10 for his performance and a shot accuracy rate of 75%.

Recently, Kyogo Furuhashi hasn’t been playing his best for Celtic. The addition of another forward option has helped to take some of the load off of the Japan international.

Rodgers’ team will play St. Mirren in the Scottish Cup on Sunday. They are continuing to defend their title after beating Buckie Thistle 5-0 at home in the previous round.

Brendan Rodgers talks about Adam Idah’s spot on the Celtic penalty shootout.
No matter how new he was to the area, Rodgers had no problem giving Idah the job of taking penalties at Easter Road.

The Irishman praised the Cork-born forward’s calm behavior during the process and has since explained why he chose to give him the chance.

According to BBC Sport, he said, “He was very calm.” At the very best level, he’s scored penalties. That’s why we put him on those. “He had a great night.”

Idah was the star of the night and spoke about how he won the game: “It was an amazing feeling to score in the 90th minute, and to get three points topped it all off.”

Celtic needs to play better over the next few weeks.
At Celtic, winning is everything, but most fans agree that the team needs to do better.

The Hoops’ four goals in their last three league games have all come from penalty kicks or shots that were badly deflected. Rodgers’ team is still struggling to come up with new ideas.

Going forward, it needs to be emphasized more on how to consistently get through low-block defenses if the title is to come to Parkhead in May.

Based on his career stats so far, Idah may not be a very dangerous and prolific shooter. He has scored only 17 goals in over 100 games for the Canaries [Transfermarkt].

But one thing he does have in spades is the ability to stay calm and collected when it matters, which is very important for someone wearing Celtic gear.

Brendan Rodgers called Idah “incredible” before the trip to Easter Road during the week, and it was clear that that made the 22-year-old Cork local very excited.

He then scored two big penalties during the game, which helped the Hoops get out of a huge hole and stay on top of the Scottish Premiership, even though Rangers was putting pressure on them for the title.

Celtic played badly that night, and some of their players, like John Collins, were criticized for how they played against Leeds.

Adam Idah, who was recently named a cult hero, was the star of the show. He has since been talking to the Scottish mainstream media about what he calls a “unbelievable” evening in Edinburgh.
