Some Celtic fans have been reacting to the comments of the club’s star striker Odsonne Edouard about his long-term future at Parkhead.
Ahead of the club’s Premiership game against Hearts, Edouard was talking to the press about many things. He was asked about his future and he revealed that the interest from other clubs is ‘flattering’ but he wants to ‘concentrate’ on his current Hoops contract.
Is Edouard the best player in Scotland?
He surely is
No, not yet
When Hoops fans heard the comments, they were very happy with what Edouard had to say, praising the striker. Superscoreboard posted the comments on Twitter and it got a reaction from many Celtic fans.
he’s going right to the very top… he’s got everything you want in a modern day player.. if we want 10.. he has to stay

Best player in Scotland by a distance

More than deserves the award. Top player in the country and is clearly loving his football as much as the fans do.

Just an all round class player on and off the pitch

The complete striker with humility to boot. That rarity in the modern game.

Edouard’s current deal at the club runs out in the summer of 2022. The French striker had come to the club from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2018 for a club-record fee of £9 million.
Edouard was linked with a move to Monaco in the January transfer window, but the Hoops rejected the deal. The same report had also talked of interest from Borussia Dortmund.
What do we think?
It is tough to know what Edouard means, but Celtic fans should relax in the knowledge that he intends to stay till the end of the season, while his contract situation means that he may stay longer. However, they should be braced for potentially losing him, considering Brendan Rodgers is said to be interested in bringing him to Leicester City. There could yet be a transfer saga brewing.
