Celtic’s top striker Odsonne Eoduard recently picked up yet another accolade to go with the many he has received in his time in Glasgow.
The Hoops striker was named as the Premiership player of the month for August.
Congratulations and well-deserved, French Eddy! 🇫🇷🍋

Edouard has been excellent for a Celtic team which has won their first five league games of the season for the first time in nine years.
Unsurprisingly, Hoops fans on social media were pleased for the Frenchman that he picked up the award.
Fan urged Celtic chief executive to give player new contract
One fan claimed that he will win more of the monthly awards during the season. Another fan urged Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell to give the player a long term deal.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Edouard’s award:
👏 well deserved Eddy bhoy 🍀

Some boy, most talented player in Scotland, will be player of the year by the end of the season, expect another couple of these along the way.

If Edouard keeps up his good form, he really could win some more player of the month awards. However, he will undeniably attract attention from interested clubs.
Italian side reportedly interested in player
According to the Daily Mail, Napoli are preparing a bid for the player. That is not something that Celtic fans will want to hear.
However, it was always unlikely that the player would spend his entire career at Celtic. Getting three of four seasons out of Edouard was always the most likely situation, before the Hoops sell him off for a profit.
Celtic fans should enjoy every minute of Edouard playing for the Hoops this season. There is no guarantee that he will be at the club next season.
