Celtic manager Neil Lennon thinks Odsonne Edouard is just going to get better and better in a Celtic shirt, as reported by The Sunday Post.

The Frenchman was in sensational form prior to the suspension of football in Scotland, tearing apart defences at home and abroad for the Hoops.

Also striking up a partnership with Leigh Griffiths, the 22-year-old looked to be hitting a new gear in his Celtic career.

He was producing the kind of displays that almost guaranteed more trophies.

Lennon is obviously thrilled with his progress but thinks there’s even more to come.

As quoted by The Sunday Post, he said: “I’m sure, once he fully matures physically, he’ll be a proper No.9 in his own right.


“He’s only just turned 22, and there’s growth still to come in him, so he’ll be the main striker during his peak years. He and Leigh have done alright together.


“But you tend to find that clever players will be on the same wavelength.

“It’s something you can’t coach. They’re linking up by making split-second decisions on the pitch and that is not something I would take credit for.”

That’s an ominous sign for the rest of Scottish football.

If Edouard is already scoring 27 plus goals a season and has more to give, just what kind of heights could he reach in the Scottish Premiership?

Celtic of course will have to keep hold of the striker next season to enjoy that kind of progression.

Interest will be expected in the player this summer if the transfer market is functioning normally.

The hope will be that we can get at least one more season out of the player.
