Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is having the early season of his life. He is the second top scorer and is showing fans that he has more than just goals to his game.
The French attacker is blossoming into the player many fans thought he could. However, the Hoops faithful shouldn’t be surprised if the star man doesn’t play against Hamilton Accies.
Celtic fans must brace themselves for Odsonne Edouard omission
The Bhoys faithful will be well aware that due to the volume of matches, not every player can be in them all.
That doesn’t change with Edouard despite his terrific engine.
Edouard has essentially featured in every match so far and has excelled in the vast majority.
Unfortunately, where some are getting a rest during the international break – Edouard is not.
Top performers get called up to represent their countries and Edouard isn’t different. His first showing with the French under-21s brought about two goals and he hasn’t rested yet.
Neil Lennon should be aiming to give Edouard and the other internationals their well deserved break.
The Hoops have the strength in depth to and put out a formidable team away at Accies on Saturday. Vakoun Bayo is playing more games and is more than deserving of another shot.
However, will Lennon drop a curveball with one of the players who didn’t appear for his country?
Lennon setting Hoops up for shock return?
Could the Irishman be lining up for a return to the first team for outcast Scott Sinclair? The Englishman’s video of him racing up to training is showing that he still hungry to play.
Lennon did sign Mohamed Elyounoussi on loan on the final day of the window. But, there are still question marks on whether the Norwegian is bedding into the club yet.
This opens the door for Sinclair to make a brief cameo appearance. Lennon must be proud to see that Sinclair isn’t putting his head down and is digging his heels in to work.
Thus, Sinclair should be rewarded for waiting his time to play.
