  • Midfielder's praise for Odsonne Edouard after super sub's double

    Midfielder's praise for Odsonne Edouard after super sub's double

    By: Paul Cuddihy on 26 Jan, 2020 12:01

  • ODSONNE Edouard came on in the 63 minute of Saturday’s match against Ross County, with the Hoops leading 1-0. Just five minutes later, it was 3-0 and the French striker had bagged a double, taking his goals tally for the season to 20.

    It was a stunning impact, earning him praise from his manager and team-mates, as well as the continued adulation of the Celtic support.

    Speaking after the game, Callum McGregor, who opened the scoring for Neil Lennon’s side with a first-half penalty, said: “I’ve said it many times how good Odsonne is, and, again, he showed his value to the group when he came off the bench and changed the game within five or six minutes… and he got Man of the Match!

    “He was excellent, he took his two goals really well and he just gives us another focal point up there when he plays. He’s so good, even in the build-up to the goal, he comes and he’s got nice soft feet to set it for Broony and he’s got that hunger to go again and get on the end of it, so he’s a real to, top player and we’re delighted to have him.

    “He’s obviously a delight for us to play with. He comes in and plays in the wee half-spaces and you just give it to him and nine times out of 10, he keeps it and does something special. So for us, as midfielders, it’s a dream to play with that.

    “Obviously, Griff has started the new year really well since we’ve come back and he’s got his two goals and looks a threat again. And to be able to bring Odsonne on from the bench is an incredible option. And Patryk and Bayo are working well in training as well, so they’re pushing the guys to keep the level up, which is what we need as we go into this final stretch of the season.
