The Hoops were delighted yesterday when they saw their club back to their very best as they smashed five goals past the league leaders Hearts at Parkhead. The gap in quality was clear to see as Hearts were off the pace all afternoon, with Odsonne Edouard grabbing two goals as he continued to show the fans why they shouldn’t be missing Moussa Dembele.

When Dembele was sold late on in the summer transfer window to Lyon, a lot of Celtic fans were fuming. However, it looks like they won’t miss him as much as they thought they would, especially seeing as Edouard is filling the Frenchman’s shoes with ease. The 20-year-old has already got 11 goals to his name this season in 19 appearances and is showing the fans that life after Dembele can still be successful.
Edouard’s brace yesterday made it three goals in two games for the striker as Celtic have hit ten in two in the Scottish Premier League. Now that Brendan Rodgers’ side are getting into their stride it looks a lot like they’re on course for another league win, and with a Scottish League Cup final still to come, the potential for a treble-treble is definitely on the cards, especially if Edouard continues to bag at the rate that he is.

The fans are over the moon with their French Eddie and will hope that Edouard can keep his levels up and carry on banging in the goals.
