Some Celtic fans react to Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths link-up

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.

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.
