'Stunning': Chris Sutton blown away by player Celtic sold in summer

For four years, Celtic had a truly incredible striker in their ranks in Odsonne Edouard.

The 23-year-old initially joined the Hoops on loan from PSG in 2017 before signing permanently a year later.

Edouard made 179 competitive appearances for Celtic, registering an amazing 86 goals and 39 assists.

He joined the Bhoys after they’d won the domestic treble in 2016-17, and helped them secure an unprecedented quadruple treble.

In the summer, Edouard swapped the Scottish Premiership for the English Premier League, joining Crystal Palace in a deal worth up to £18.5million.

And the Frenchman is impressing for his new club, registering three goals in his first five Premier League games.

All of Edouard’s goals so far have come against North London opposition.

He netted a brace in a 3-0 win over Spurs in September before netting against Arsenal on Monday night.

Palace came close to beating the Gunners, coming from behind to lead 2-1, only for Alexandre Lacazette to equalise on 95 minutes.

Edouard scored the goal which put Palace in front, a fierce effort which went in off the underside of the bar.

Celtic icon Chris Sutton was on commentating duties for BBC Radio 5 Live and was blown away by the former Hoops man’s efforts.

“Stunning from Edouard, what a piece of business from Palace,” said Sutton (18/10/21, 21:36).

“Once again they turn the ball over in the middle of the park.

“He just puts his laces through the ball and there’s all sorts of movement in the air, Ramsdale no chance.

“Palace deserve this. A brilliant finish.”
