  • We Wanna Be Edouard: French Eddy's an Insta hit with fans

    We Wanna Be Edouard: French Eddy's an Insta hit with fans

    By: Paul Cuddihy on 30 Apr, 2020 10:31

  • ODSONNE Edouard is the latest Celt to answer fans’ questions on the club’s official Instagram, and the player who the fans all adore revealed that his goal in the 2-0 Glasgow derby victory at Ibrox back in September is his favourite of the season “…just for the celebration!”

    That goal is one of the 10 nominees for the Magners Goal of the Season Award.

    However, that’s not his favourite goal in the fixture. Of the six goals he’s scored against Rangers, it was the winner at Ibrox back in March 2018, when the 10 men of Celtic won 3-2 on their way to the Double Treble, that sticks out for him.

    “It was a great day, and one of the best and one of the best for me at Celtic. That’s my favourite derby goal,” said Edouard.

    The French striker has now scored 62 goals in 128 appearances for the Hoops and has been a key figure this season in what has been a very impressive campaign for Neil Lennon’s side.

    They’ve won the League Cup, topped their Europa League group with home and away wins over Lazio, they’re in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup and have a commanding 13-point lead at the top of the Premiership with just eight matches remaining.

    And the 22-year-old forward, who has been impressive throughout the campaign, will be one of the frontrunners for the Dafabet Player of the Year Award, which is voted for by the fans.

    You can check out the #AskEdouard Q&A session with French Eddy in full over on the official Celtic Instagram's story, but are just a few of his answers.

    DID YOU THINK OLIVIER NTCHAM WAS GOING TO SCORE WHEN YOU PLAYED HIM IN AGAINST LAZIO?
    ‘I tried to play Olivier in the best way so that he could score, but I admit that I did not expect such a beautiful goal. It was an amazing feeling to win in Rome.’

    IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE IMPORTANT PART OF THIS SEASON, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
    ‘The derby we lost. It allowed us to question ourselves during the break and to come back stronger for the second part of the season.’

    FAVOURITE GOAL FOR CELTIC?
    ‘I have scored a lot of beautiful goals, but if I had to choose one, I would say the lob away to Aberdeen.’

    FAVOURITE MOMENT IN A CELTIC SHIRT?
    ‘Winning the treble treble. Best moment in my career so far.

    HOW DID IT FEEL TO SCORE THE GOALS TO WIN THE TREBLE TREBLE
    ‘I was very happy. It was a magic moment for me, my teammates, and all the fans.’
