Neil Lennon explains how one Celtic player was ‘sublime’ in latest victory

Celtic manager Neil Lennon singled out Odsonne Edouard for huge praise after his display on Wednesday night.

The 23-year-old scored from the penalty spot during Celtic’s victory away to St Mirren in midweek during the Scottish Premiership fixture.

The Bhoys earned three points with a 4-0 win, with Tom Rogic, Ryan Christie and David Turnbull also on the scoresheet for the visitors.

It seems an impossible task to claw back the now 18-point deficit to league leaders Rangers and it looks like they will fail in the defence of their crown, but they have at least some form in February.

 

Lennon picked out Celtic striker Edouard as somebody that caught his eye against St Mirren:

“He missed a couple of good chances but his touch and movement were sublime. He’s a class player and is really on top form,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

TBR’s View:

Edouard has had a fairly disappointing individual campaign by his high standards.

But he’s now on a five-game goalscoring run in the league, where he’s netted 17 times in 28 appearances this season in all competitions.

The French centre-forward appears to have rediscovered some form lately, which is a big positive for the Scottish giants moving forward.

His St Mirren goal came from a spot-kick, but he was so heavily involved in the final third during the game with his intelligent movement, hold up play and energy.
