As a result, Giorgos Giakoumakis began the game on the bench but came on as a second-half substitute. Celtic had already taken a 3-0 lead in the match thanks to goals from Kyogo, Jota, and Moritz Jenz, making a Kilmarnock comeback all but impossible. As a result, Postecoglou’s team could have eased off the gas and played it safe. Instead, the Hoops demanded more. Carl Starfelt added a fourth, and Giakoumakis made it 5-0 with a spectacular overhead kick. The Greek striker has a talent for the extraordinary. Giakoumakis joined Celtic after leaving VVV-Venlo in the summer of 2021, having topped the Eredivisie scoring charts. Since then, the move has been a huge success. According to Transfermarkt statistics, Giakoumakis has scored 18 goals in 32 appearances for Celtic across all competitions. As a result, there are calls for him to start more games this season, which he fully deserves. Indeed, his performances appear to be catching the attention of clubs in the South. Giakoumakis is unlikely to leave Celtic. According to Fabrizio Romano, Giakoumakis has been approached by Premier League clubs in recent days, but Celtic have no intention of parting ways with the striker, who is also happy at Parkhead: Clubs were interested in Georgios Giakoumakis, who is doing well for Celtic and has been approached by Premier League clubs in recent days. Celtic have no intention of selling him: he is untouchable. He’s an important player, and Giakoumakis is content at Celtic. Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) — 16 August 2022 Giakoumakis is an incredibly effective forward who deserves to see more playing time. However, with the Hoops set to compete in the Champions League, he will undoubtedly see more playing time. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain his place in Postecoglou’s starting lineup. Postecoglou’s challenge is to find a way to start both Kyogo and Giakoumakis at the same time, as both deserve to play.
