Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has described his winning goal at Ibrox as his greatest moment in football so far.
The 20-year-old, who is on-loan from PSG came on as a substitute in the latest Old Firm derby and his curling strike gave a ten man Hoops side a famous 3-2 victory.
“Without doubt, it’s the greatest moment of my life as a footballer so far. I will always remember this big moment for the rest of my career.” the Frenchman said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
The striker has been highly influential in the last few matches, he changed the Scottish Cup quarter-final tie against Morton by giving the Bhoys an impetus in the game which they had been lacking.
His winning goal at Ibrox just about secured a seventh league title in a row for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who hold a nine point lead with a game in hand over their bitter rivals.
Edouard seems certain to start for the Bhoys in their next game, a trip to Motherwell on Sunday.
Football Insider verdict
No wonder Edouard will always remember his goal, it was one of the most important in the last few years for the Hoops and sealed a victory which will go down as one of the Bhoys’ best ever wins at Ibrox. The players’ calmness and composure was striking as he curled the ball into the net past the despairing Wes Foderingham. If the player moves on from Glasgow in the summer, he will always be remembered as a hero by supporters for that winning goal, if he stays permanently however, the goal could prove to be the kick-start of a career as the Hoops’ number one striker, but only time will tell on that one.
