Celtic: Fans were begging for Odsonne Edouard’s to be brought on in Betfred Cup final

Celtic: Fans were begging for Odsonne Edouard’s to be brought on in Betfred Cup final - Celtic

Celtic manager Neil Lennon opted to start with Lewis Morgan up front in the Betfred Cup final against Rangers.

Unfortunately for the 23-year-old, though, he was unable to provide that spark in attack and fire his team into the lead as they went into half-time with things level at 0-0.

Will Kieran Tierney regret leaving Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Clearly unsatisfied with how things were going offensively, Celtic fans quickly called for the introduction of Odsonne Edouard.

Struggling with what Lennon initially described as a “niggle”, Edouard was only fit enough to start from the bench — a disappointment given the threat that he brings to this Hoops side.

The 21-year-old has been in deadly form this season, scoring 10 goals in 12 SPFL appearances. He had also scored five goals against Rangers heading into the Scottish League Cup final, according to Transfermarkt, further showing that he is the man for such occasions.

So with the game at 0-0, Celtic fans called for their French forward, who was eventually brought on just before the hour mark.
