Chris Sutton singled out Odsonne Edouard for his moment of magic that put Celtic on the road to victory against Kilmarnock.

The Hoops striker took a cross from Jeremie Frimpong, turned his man with some superb skill and quick feet and fired the Hoops in the lead, in a game which Celtic won 3-1.

Sutton was full of praise for Edouard’s moment of skill on social media.

“Terrific feet and finish from Edouard” he said on his official Twitter account.

Edouard’s finish was indeed excellent, and the player will probably be slightly disappointed that he didn’t manage to score more goals for the Hoops.

He missed a few good chances, and really could have hit a hat-trick.


Still, you can’t really complain when he displays the skill that he did for the goal that put the Hoops into the lead.

Linked up well with teammate

Another encouraging aspect of Edouard’s display, that wasn’t mentioned by Sutton, was how well he linked up with Leigh Griffiths.

For most of his time at Celtic, Edouard has been a lone striker. However, that looks to have changed in the last few games.

He has played alongside Griffiths, and the duo have worked well, as Griffiths has scored two goals and Edouard once in the Hoops’ last two games.

The pair’s partnership could well help the Hoops in the battle to secure nine in a row.

It is good to see that the winter break hasn’t blunted Edouard’s skill at all. His goal was very special. It is no surprise that Sutton was so impressed by the player, and his memorable moment.
