Frank McAvennie has suggested Odsonne Edouard’s performances are picking up for Celtic because he wants a move.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the Parkhead legend said the 23-year-old was “superb” in the 1-1 draw with Rangers and was complimented well by Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Despite scoring an impressive 20 goals in 34 appearances across all competitions, Edouard has blown hot and cold this season.

The French striker is fast approaching the final 12 months of his contract at Parkhead and is expected to be one of a number of players who leave this summer.

According to the The Transfer Window podcast, Liverpool are the latest team to join the hunt for Edouard.

McAvennie claimed the centre-forward would have to continue to play well for the remainder of the season if he wanted to seal an exit.

“Edouard and Elyounoussi complimented each other so well in that first half against Rangers,” he told Football Insider. “They were superb.

“When was the last time we saw Celtic score a goal like that? I can’t remember.

“We used to create chances all of the time but that has not been the case this season. This season they have not got to the byline enough. It sounds simple but clearly it’s not.

“I liked what I saw from those two as a combination but we have not seen it enough this year.

“You have to play well if you want a move and Edouard’s performances are starting to pick up.”
