Loan star must surely seal permanent Celtic deal with if he fires club to title


Celtic loan signing Odsonne Edouard has the chance to seal a permanent deal with the Hoops, if he fires the Bhoys to title glory against Rangers at Celtic Park.

The 20-year-old PSG striker has been selected to replace Moussa Dembele the Hoops starting line-up for the game, which was announced on the Bhoys official Twitter account a short time ago.

It is understandable why Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has selected Edouard to lead the line, following his excellent performance at Ibrox last month, where he scored the winning goal which all but clinched the title for the Hoops.

He has been in and out of the Hoops side this season, as he has had to compete with both Griffiths and Dembele for what is usually the one striking role for the Bhoys.

If he turns in a performance which wins the league for the Bhoys, the support will demand that the Hoops make his loan deal a permanent one at the end of the season.

With doubts over Dembele’s long-term future at the club, a wow of a display from Edouard could put him in pole position to become the Hoops main striker going forward.

This is a huge chance for Edouard, now the time to see if he can make the most of it.
