'Brilliant' - Exclusive: Paul Robinson names the one Celtic player who can hold head high
Paul Robinson has hailed Odsonne Edouard as the one Celtic player who delivered the goods as they suffered European heartache.
The former Tottenham and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that the Frenchman can hold his head up high following the Hoops’ Europa League exit last night.
The 22-year-old coolly dinked in a penalty to level the scores at 1-1 in the home clash at Parkhead and seemingly put the tie on course for extra time before two late Copenhagen goals sent Celtic out of the competition.
Edouard had previously scored the away goal in Denmark to seemingly put Celtic on course for a place in the last 16.
Robinson says that the former PSG man’s impressive record is only enhanced by the effort he puts in both on and off the ball, suggesting there will be plenty of interest over a potential transfer.
Robinson told Football Insider: “He’s shown this year his tenacity, he’s got a little bit about him, little bit of attitude which is good.

“He knows where the goal is, he’s still very young, what he’s achieved at Celtic has been brilliant, it’s looking like he’s going to lead them to the title with his ability.
“He’s tenacious, he’s not afraid to put his foot in, he’s not afraid to work and he’s certainly not done himself any harm to potential suitors with his goal-scoring record.”
Edouard, who arrived at Parkhead on an initial loan back in 2018, scored 58 goals in 122 appearances prior to Thursday night’s game, with 29 assists to add to his tally.
This season has seen him net 25 times and set up a further 17 goals for his teammates.
