After his goal in the 2-0 win over AIK, Celtic fans think Odsonne Edouard can be one of the best strikers their club has ever seen.
Edouard added to James Forrest’s second-half strike to put Neil Lennon’s men in the driving seat of the Europa League play-off tie. The two-goal advantage gives the Celts a great chance of making the group stages, with the Bhoys travelling to Sweden next week for the return leg.
His goal has changed the complexion of the play-off tie, and this hasn’t been lost on the fans. Defending a 2-0 lead will be far easier for the Celts’ patched-up defence than having to deal with a nervy 1-0 advantage.
It was the French forward’s fifth goal of the season in his ninth outing, and it’s got the supporters incredibly excited. The club’s record signing has got them running out of superlatives after another important goal for the Celts, having popped up with a few in his time at Parkhead already.
There have been plenty of legendary strikers pass through Glasgow down the years, and here’s what the fans had to say about their current striker’s latest important goal…
I’m not saying Edouard is the best striker in Europe, but Edouard is the best striker in Europe https://t.co/jRbxVxRBJX

No reason why Edouard can’t go to the very top. He’s different class. Alongside Dembele, the best striker to have played in Scotland for a long time. Surely there’s nobody still doubting his ability.

I love Edouard more than I’ve ever loved Dembele.
Greatest since Larsson?

The improvement in Edouard’s hold up play, I see glimpses of Dembele. His link up play has grown also. This could be a massive season for him ??

Genuinely appreciate Edouard while he’s ever, what an unreal talent he is. Every bit as good as Dembele. Going to go to the very top.

edouard arguably got more potential than dembele. boy is scary good.

On his day, Edouard is just as good as Dembele..if not better.
Dembele wasn’t as good a dribbler as Eddy is.
