Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard were two of the many stand-outs as Celtic made it four wins from four at the start of 2020 and remained five points clear at the top of the Premiership.
The pair have only started a handful of games together but there are surefire signs that they’re getting used to playing alongside each other – with the St. Johnstone defence struggling to deal with their movement.
And their link-up play didn’t go unnoticed among many members of the vast Celtic support – as they took to Twitter to share their joy at what they were witnessing.
Brilliant first half from Celtic.
Edouard and Griffiths linking up superbly and Taylor showing why he should be the No.1 choice at left back.

Griffiths and Edouard look so good together upfront. Chuffed to see Griffiths score again now the games over anyway. Stevie Clark better not ignore him!!!!!!!!!!!

Edouard n griffiths playing very well together could be a lethal duo

Irresistible at times tonight. Two upgtop suits us far better, as does 3 at the back. Ntcham looks well for a run of games & the Edouard/Griffiths combination is excellent even on this surface. 🍀

Surely no further case for two up top has to be made than that stunning, wonderful, brilliant first half performance? We pulled them all over the shop. No defence in the country will cope with Griffiths and Edouard supported by Ntcham or Rogic or Christie. No defence.

The Griffiths partnership with Edouard is what will win us the league. Keep them together and fit at all costs

Griffiths and Edouard are both scoring goals
The decision to play two up front has been by far the biggest takeaway from Celtic’s first few matches of the calendar year.
The team does feel like more of a Neil Lennon side than a Brendan Rodgers once, perhaps like they were before.
Rodgers virtually always went with one striker during his three seasons in charge but the positives of playing two forwards have been there to see in recent weeks.
Griffiths and Edouard are growing with every game. There almost seemed to be a moment in our win at Kilmarnock last week when they clicked, and they’ve been playing some mindblowing stuff since.
They work so well because they are different. Edouard tends to drop into midfield while Griffiths likes to go in behind defences.
But they now both have three goals in four games at the start of this year. That is the proof needed that they are working well together.
