Sutton calls on Postecoglou to freeze out Celtic ace Edouard

Chris Sutton has called on Celtic to freeze out Odsonne Edouard if he’s not committed to the club.

The striker was linked with a £15m move to Leicester City, however, the transfer seemingly failed.

As a result, Brendan Rodgers’ men turned to Red Bull Salzburg’s Patson Daka. The Premier League side signed the Zambian on a five-year deal for £22m.

Edouard’s future has been left up in the air with reports claiming the France youth international wants to leave.

Speaking for the Daily Record, Sutton claimed Ange Postecoglou has just two ways of dealing with the ace.

Sit him down and talk to him, or keep him away from the pre-season camp in Wales.

When talking about Edouard, Sutton said: “Ange Postecoglou has only two ways to deal with Odsonne Edouard. And Celtic’s board need to back his decision 100 per cent.”

“Postecoglou can’t allow the rest of the squad to see he’s prepared to accept that. If Edouard gives off that vibe, make him train on his own at Lennoxtown and get him sold.”

TBR View: Edouard needs to help his cause amid comments from Sutton

Edouard needs to help himself amid the comments from Sutton over his future.

Last season was a poor campaign for the France youth international. He may have scored 22 times, however, his performances, alongside his teammates’, were poor.

It’s quite telling that aside from Leicester City, the noise regarding a move away has gone quiet.

Nobody’s banging the door down about getting a deal done for the 23-year-old.

This is where Edouard needs to help himself. Starting next season like a runaway train can see him earn a move.

There will be plenty of suitors for his signatures, not least in north London.

Arsenal are looking to offload Alexandre Lacazette, meanwhile, Tottenham could be waving goodbye to Harry Kane.

The opportunity to seek a move away is still on the horizon. However, Edouard needs to knuckle down as oppossed to down tools.
