When Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was doing answering questions on the Hoops Instagram account on Monday, one query asked him about who his best strike partner was?

The answer, which must have come a surprise to no one, was fellow Hoops striker Odsonne Edouard.

“Hope it continues”

“I’m going with Odsonne Edouard, the way we’ve been playing together has been brilliant and I hope it continues” he said.

Griffiths’ hopes will likely be shared by the entire Hoops support. It is fair to say that the duo’s partnership transformed Celtic’s season before the football lockdown began.

The Hoops’ performances after the January winter break were far better than those prior to the break, and a big reason for that has to be down to the partnership between Edouard and Griffiths that was established by Neil Lennon.


No wonder Griffiths hopes it lasts. It has made him into a much better player. It has also made Celtic into a much better team.

Hoops boss will keep faith in duo

You would imagine that whenever football does return to Scotland that Neil Lennon will stick with the strike duo of Griffiths and Edouard, as they have given Celtic much success.

Perhaps the only concern is how long the partnership will last – as Edouard is bound to attract suitors when the transfer window reopens.

Therefore, fans must enjoy the strike partnership for as long as it lasts. It is probably the best duo up-front that Celtic have had since Anthony Stokes and Gary Hooper, and the longer it lasts it will likely surpass that partnership.

For now, fans will need to wait until they get their next chance to see the pair of Edouard and Griffiths in action again.

Hopefully there won’t be that long a wait until they return, and it will be interesting to see if the duo still play as well after such a long lay off.
