Rangers’ simultaneous defeat to Kilmarnock leaves Neil Lennon’s side firmly on course to equal a club record by winning nine leagues in a row and that would bring the prospect of completing 10 consecutive titles tantalisingly within reach.
Striker Odsonne Edouard has been a key figure in their increasingly likely march towards yet another Premiership crown, with the Frenchman scoring 19 goals already in the league this season. However, a question posed by Celtic Underground on Twitter (@celticrumours) addressed an unenviable elephant in the room.
Might eddy stay for 10?

The 22-year-old’s future at Parkhead has at times been placed in potential doubt due to the reported interest of several clubs from Europe’s top five leagues in his signature. Both Leicester and Napoli have reportedly been willing to pay £30m for him (as per Daily Record and Daily Mail respectively), with a potential reunion with ex-Hoops team-mate Moussa Dembele at Lyon also broached by Football Insider claiming that the Ligue 1 side were keeping tabs on him.
These Celtic fans on Twitter were divided on the likelihood of Edouard still being at the club if they manage to extend their sequence of consecutive Premiership triumphs to 10 in 2021:
I’m deluded enough to think he might. I think the Toulouse incident came close enough to ending his career that he’s got a wee bit perspective on things now. And the fact Dembele is still tic’d up despite leaving makes me wonder(hope) he might hang about to become a legend.

I actually think he will

23 at end of ten in a row.
He might not get the level of team he wants this summer
There is no major tournament in summer 2021 with France for him to try and force his way in to squad. Possible one more crack at ucl next season might not be on offer if mid table team in epl bids

Think he will move on in the summer, sadly.

Said that about Dembele. Nah I think he’s off at the summer. H.H.

I cannae see it.
10 doesnt mean the same to him as it does to us.
plus I expect big money offers. Not morelos type of offers, real offers.
in saying that I would love him to stay though….

Nope. I mean I’d love him to, but still, nope.

Celtic fans, do you think Edouard will stay at the club with the firm possibility of winning a 10th successive league title next year, or can you see him being tempted to another league before then? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
