Ex-Liverpool, Juventus and PSG star Mohamed Sissoko represents Bayo, who scored a double on his debut at loan club Toulouse. His new side lost 5-3 in the end against Grenoble in Ligue 2 but after the 23-year-old's goal heroics, Sissoko insisted Lennon's arrival to replace Brendan Rodgers meant his client would no longer feature. He said: "The change of manager at Celtic made it complicated for him because it wasn't the current manager who signed him.
That's the only reason he didn't play. "But everyone else at Celtic was unanimous in praising his qualities. "He is desperate to play for Toulouse and score goals. "He has scored goals in Ivory Coast and in Slovakia and he was signed by Brendan Rodgers, but unfortunately he left a short time later. "Therefore, his playing time was reduced to nothing. "He knows how to score goals. He is a proper No.9 and can play in a partnership or on his own. If Toulouse use him properly, he will do very well. "There were clubs interested in signing him from Scotland and Belgium, but he has bought 100 per cent into the Toulouse project and they were the best choice for him."
