The 22-year-old reacted to his free-kick against Hearts last season with an emoji of a dartboard, quite an apt choice considering how good the strike was.
Edouard has been a prolific presence at Celtic Park ever since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2018, he has found the net 58 times in 122 appearances, per Transfermarkt.
Here’s what fans have been saying about him…

The Frenchman was lauded as a “superstar” as well as a sniper, while a couple of supporters noted how he fired home the set-piece right on cue as he was announced as Man of the Match at the very same time.
Edouard has continued his rich vein of form into this season, where he has found the net 25 times and even provided 17 assists in all competitions.
It has led to several clubs holding transfer interest in him, including Leicester City where ex-Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers is now at, Newcastle United, Everton and even Manchester United, per the Daily Record.
Plenty of fans have been begging him to stay as a result…
Stay forever handsome xoxo 😘

Never Leave KING
— Frosty (@Dannyfrost67) February 24, 2020
“Stay forever” and “never leave” summed up the feelings of those who were desperate not to lose him.
There were also comparisons made to a former Bhoys striker, a legendary one at that, in Henrik Larsson as one member of the Celtic Park faithful claimed he is the best since the Swede graced the hallowed turf in Glasgow.
Edouard was also described as a “king.”
Best. Since. Larsson. 🍀
