Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard endures day to forget vs St Johnstone

Things are going from bad to worse for Celtic right now.

The Hoops have now won just two times in their last 12 outings with the last of their poor results coming on Sunday.

Neil Lennon’s side were devoid of creativity as they drew 1-1 with St Johnstone, relying on a late goal from Mo Elyounoussi to rescue a point.

However, earning a point here is unlikely to do anything for their season. After Rangers won 4-0 earlier in the day, it meant that the Hoops are now 13 points off top spot.

If there were any lingering hopes that ten SPFL titles in a row could be achieved, they can surely now be said farewell to.

Indeed, they should also be saying goodnight to Lennon, a manager who is failing to get much from his players right now. Worryingly, Celtic and Lennon also can’t get much from star man Odsonne Edouard.

Would you cash in on Edouard in January?

Absolutely

Definitely not

On Sunday, the Frenchman had an afternoon to forget, proving wasteful in front of goal. It was rare from someone who is usually ice-cool when presented with an opportunity.

Edouard missed one big opportunity and fluffed a further two, spurning chances that he’d usually score with his eyes closed. He appeared scared and won just 25% of his duels on a day where he misfired all over the pitch.

The 28-year-old lost possession 12 times – a tally worse than Scott Brown – and completed only one of the three dribbles he attempted. It’s a huge concern that Edouard is blowing so hot and cold at the moment.

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

In his last five games, he’s found the back of the net three times, but he has failed to score against Ross County and now St Johnstone.

The decision not to sign Ivan Toney in the summer is looking poorer as the weeks go by. Celtic wanted him but he eventually left Peterborough for Brentford and has scored 14 goals in 16 outings.

That says it all – as good as Edouard can be, Celtic missed a diamond. It’s clearly costing them.

In other news, Celtic are on the verge of making a big mistake with Dembele…
