Celtic-linked Stephen O'Donnell raves about Odsonne Edouard
Sept. 18, 2019
Odsonne Edouard has been in red-hot form for Celtic.
Stephen O'Donnell believes that Celtic's Odsonne Edouard is the best striker in Scottish football right now, noting that he 'has everything'.
Edouard opened the scoring in the Hoops' 2-0 win at Rangers prior to the international break for his sixth goal of the season across all competitions.
The former Paris Saint-Germain talent, who dazzled for France Under-21s during the break in club football, looks set to have his best season at Celtic following a £9 million permanent move in the summer of 2018.
Rangers hitman Alfredo Morelos has five goals more than him already this season in all competitions, but O'Donnell, reportedly a target of Bhoys boss Neil Lennon in recent months [ Scottish Sun ], believes that the Frenchman is the total package.
"I'd probably say Edouard. I think when he is on song he has got everything," the Kilmarnock and Scotland defender told BBC Sportsound .
"He is tall, athletic, his quality on the ball, dribbling. Everything about him. He looks like a top player."
The difference between Edouard and Morelos right now is pedigree. The Colombian hasn't yet scored against Celtic, despite hitting 30 goals last season, but Edouard has five goals in as many games against the Gers .
You can see why O'Donnell favours the Hoops marksman at the moment.
