Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney has revealed that match-winner Odsonne Edouard didn’t go overboard in his celebrations after the Hoops won 3-2 at Ibrox.
The Scotland international disclosed that the player ‘strolled’ into the dressing room after the win and was a picture of composure compared to his team-mates.
“What a goal it was” Tierney said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“He came into the dressing room after the game when everyone was buzzing and he was still his usual quiet self.
“I am sure he was thrilled with it but he is a big calm lad and he just came strolling into the dressing room after the game. We were delighted for him.”
The 20-year-old Frenchman, who is on-loan with the Hoops until the end of the season, showed great maturity when curling home the goal which all but seals the Bhoys’ seventh consecutive league title.
He has now scored eight goals for the season and supporters will be hoping that the Hoops take up the option to buy which is included in his loan deal.
Football Insider verdict
Edouard’s calmness in such a huge game shows that the player has a bright future ahead of him. He took his finish really well and even at 20-years-old it looks like nothing much phases the player. He has done well in his first season in Scottish football as he has had to compete with the likes of Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele for what at times has been one forward position. However, as has been seen in recent games he works best in a partnership with Dembele, and the Hoops should stick with the pairing up-front as they aim to complete a second consecutive domestic treble.
