Odsonne Edouard was back in training today after his critical, cameo role at Hampden on Sunday.
The striker missed three matches before making a half hour appearance in the League Cup Final which instantly changed the course of the game.
With his first touch of the ball he was clattered by Connor Goldson resulting in the free kick that Celtic scored from.

Edouard then set up Mikey Johnston for Celtic’s second chance of the game with the Ibrox defenders panic struck whenever he got on the ball.
Willie Collum offered the striker no protection from a series of ‘industrial’ challenges but from today’s training ground images it seems that Edouard has come through the test relatively unscathed.
Neil Lennon is highly unlikely to take the former Paris Saint Germain striker to Cluj later today but with 15 points to play for between December 15 and 29 the hoops boss will be leaning on his first choice striker to increase Celtic’s SPFL lead before the turn of the year.
