In the end it was a low-key departure but there is no doubt that Odsonne Edouard left Celtic with plenty of memories.
Signed on loan in August 2017 from Paris Saint Germain he became Celtic’s record signing 10 months later when a £9m fee was agreed.
After posting a few markers French Eddie made his name with a dramatic winner at Ibrox in March 2018, two months later he scored twice as the SPFL title was won in a 5-0 derby route.

Along the way Edouard became the leading goalscorer in the French u-21 side, when Neil Lennon replaced Brendan Rodgers it was the Frenchman that came up with late winners away to Hearts and Dundee to secure the eighth successive title.
At Hampden in the Scottish Cup Final he was again the match-winner with two goals to secure the Treble Treble.
Last season was one that Celtic fans won’t look back at with any fondness but there was the satisfaction of completing another Treble with Neil McCann very upset by the Panenka penalty that Edouard dinked past Craig Gordon.
