While the Hoops did lose 2-0 in the Scottish Cup, the Frenchman had a penalty saved by Gers goalkeeper Allan McGregor. This came after he racked up a tally of scoring five penalties in the ongoing Premiership campaign.

Talking about Edouard, Boyce claimed (3:32): “I’ve got to say [that] I thought his technique attempt or whatever it was with that, for me, it summed up that this guy’s head is not at Celtic remotely anywhere near it should be. That was an individual moment as opposed to a Celtic moment. At that time we were desperate for a goal.”

TIF Thoughts on Edouard…

Edouard has been linked with a move away Celtic multiple times, with the likes of Crystal Palace and Aston Villa interested in him. Brighton also like him and Monaco had a bid rejected for him.

Edouard’s contract at Celtic runs out in the summer of 2022, meaning that the upcoming summer could be Celtic’s best chance of selling him. Or otherwise, they could lose him on a free transfer. He is currently valued at £13.5 million, so Celtic should try their best to earn a good fee from his sale in the summer.
