The well of good-will to Odsonne Edouard ran dry last night in Denmark.
Nothing went right for Edouard, the most concerning aspect was that it didn’t seem to bother him too much. The striker is generally quite laid back but last night’s performance seemed to cross a border.
If it wasn’t laid on a plate to him it wasn’t worth contesting, passes to team-mates were under-hit, in the air he was barely able to contest a ball.
With less than a year to go on his contract the warning signs have been obvious. Typical of Celtic there was no Plan B with Albian Ajeti the only striker on the bench. At home Leigh Griffiths was nursing a calf strain after failing to play a full 90 minutes in the whole of last season.
Brighton may be about to come in with the £20m offer to take Edouard to the EPL, if it happens it will be the weakest sign off following four years of scoring highlights but marred by a half-hearted farewell.

This might be the worst I’ve seen Edouard in a Celtic shirt.
Fingers crossed the Brighton deal is concluded in the coming days.
Great player, wish we could keep a hold of him but his head is gone.

Need rid ASAP great player na not fir me its not possible for a “great player” to turn in some of the performances we have seen from him over the years

He had been putting on this ‘lack of effort’ now for some time. As long as he’s getting paid by Celtic then he should be committed. Would ring alarm bells for any interested buyer too! Disgraceful tonight

Absolutely. I’m now struggling to remember his last good game. Au revoir. (spoiler alert:he may now score the winner….)

Cmon mate, he’s stealing a shirt at Celtic now. No excuse for lack of effort and desire

Shocking performance. Can’t believe he’s still on the park.

Sorry but Eddy played the way he’s played more often than not for the last 12 months.
He’s either nowhere near as good a player as we all thought he was or he’s not trying a lick.
