Celtic: Fans have their say on Odsonne Edouard and Alfredo Morelos comparison

Former St Johnstone defender Joe Shaughnessy was asked by the Daily Record & Sunday Mail for his say on Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and Glasgow counterpart Alfredo Morelos.

When asked which of the two forwards he would rather go up against, the 27-year-old said that he would be more fearful of lining up against Morelos [via Daily Record & Sunday Mail], with a link to the piece published on the @SundayMailSport Twitter account.

Shaughnessy told the Daily Record & Sunday Mail that he would “probably rather play against Edouard” and, having faced both players last season, he said: “I feared Morelos more“.

Both strikers were prolific in the 2018/19 Scottish Premiership, with Edouard scoring 22 goals for Celtic in that campaign and Morelos netting 17 for his side.

However, the Celtic man has a far superior record in Glasgow derbies – he has netted five times in as many appearances against his club’s fierce rivals, including one in last week’s 2-0 win at Ibrox, whereas Morelos has never scored against Celtic in seven derbies.

These Celtic fans on Twitter feel that there is only one winner when the two strikers are compared:
