He was always up against it with Patrick Roberts returning to Celtic but Odsonne Edouard certainly made a big impact on his Celtic debut.

‘He’s fast’ was the instant impression as the on loan Paris St Germain striker led the line in the absence of injured duo Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths.

It didn’t take Edouard long to tune in to the way that his team-mates play the game with his pace matched by a solid understanding of the game and his role.

The big test, as ever, with any striker is how do they finish with the French teenager answering that with style midway through the second half with a debut goal.

A burst of pace, a quick 1-2 with Roberts and he was through on goal with an early stab at the ball sending it beyond the keeper with a quick shot.

There’s nothing better for a striker than a debut goal with Edouard doing everything that was hoped for and showing that he’s not going to be content on the sidelines as third choice to anyone.
