How much do you think members of the Bhoys' squad are worth according to Transfermarkt? Starting with an easy one how much do you think Odsonne Edouard is worth?

In reaction, Anderson took to Twitter to relay the news, adding that the former Norwich City manager is “highly thought of” by the Celtic hierarchy – who are currently looking for a long-term replacement for Neil Lennon after the 49-year-old resigned earlier this year.

However, fans of Celtic then flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing distraught at the prospect of Neil being appointed as their club’s new permanent manager this summer.
