'Bullied', 'Very poor' – Celtic fans destroy one attacker despite 5-0 win v Brechin
Celtic fans have slammed the display of 20-year-old striker Odsonne Edouard, despite a big win against Brechin in the Scottish Cup.
Brendan Rodgers’ men booked their passage to the next round of the cup with a routine 5-0 win.
James Forrest opened the scoring in the 2nd minute, before goals from Scott Sinclair, Olivier Ntcham and Dedryck Boyata wrapped things up for the Scottish giants.
However, one man was absent from the scoresheet – young striker Edouard who started up top for Celtic – until he popped up in the 86th minute to round off the 5-0 win.
And fans were not impressed with his performance, especially with goals on offer in a relatively easy cup tie.
One said that he wouldn’t be a Celtic player for long after displays like today’s.
Another said he hasn’t done anything to convince him he’s worth spending money on.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from Celtic fans:
Said it before and I’ll say it again. Edouard won’t be a Celtic long term. He’s not got it.

Is Edouard being bullied or something? Nobody is passing the ball to him.

Edouard had to do something in that 45…he has been very poor. Dembele needs to come on and get himself up and running for second half of the season @ClydeSSB

Let's no sugar coat it. Edouard is pish. There I said it. ????

With my pragmatist brain engaged Celtic have managed this game perfectly.
With my supporter brain on this has been a wee bit dire.
Need a few goals second half and big Edouard to get involved.

The boy that came on up front for Brechin has played better than Edouard..???? no danger we’re paying £millions for him.
