Struggling Edouard may have have work cut out to regain regular starting berth

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard was substituted off against St Johnstone last weekend and subsequently missed Wednesday’s win over Hibernian.

The Frenchman had entered the game as a substitute but lasted only eight minutes before being clattered by Joe Shaughnessy, as reported by The Daily Record.

Edouard had only just returned to the squad following a muscle injury and will have been hoping to make an impact.

Especially with the club having signed offensive cover in the January transfer window in the form of Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah.

 

With Edouard touch and go to face St Johnstone at the weekend, he might just have his work cut out to regain his regular starting berth.

Burke start could relegate Edouard

Loan star Burke has started off his Celtic career very brightly, having scored three times in five appearances already.

The West Bromwich Albion player has been deployed as a central striker by Brendan Rodgers and has fared excellently to his credit.

Burke looks dangerous with his pace and power and Rodgers will certainly find it difficult to drop the Scot.

Edouard has scored 14 goals in all competitions this season, but with Burke having started so well the ex-Paris Saint-Germain youngster may now struggle to get the same amount of game time, especially with Weah also looking sharp.
