Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard has let on how happy he is at the club after struggling for action with Paris Saint Germain.

The France under-21 striker was given a new lease of life with the Bhoys, originally joining the Glasgow giants on loan, before completing a permanent move last summer.

In his time with Celtic, the 21-year-old has gone from strength to strength, scoring regularly for the Scottish treble winners and representing his country at various age groups, where he has also thrived.

In all, Edouard has played 98 times for the Bhoys in all competitions and has found the back of the net on 43 occasions, bagging five of those in just seven appearances for them this term.

The Celtic striker has been away with the France under-21 side in the current international break, where he continued his fine start to the campaign, notching a hat-trick in a 5-3 win over Slovakia on Tuesday evening.

After that outing the Bhoys star was given the option of reflecting on his time at Celtic Park, and explaining just what playing for the club is doing for his career.

“I’m having fun, I’m sticking in goals, and earning playing time. That’s what I need.” The Daily Record quote him as saying.

“At PSG, I did not have the chance to have a lot so obviously I could not show what I was worth.

“Now that I have a lot more playing time, I take this opportunity to demonstrate my qualities.”

Celtic fans will hope that their record signing can continue his good scoring form when he is back in a Hoops shirt this weekend, as they resume their season in the unusual position of playing catch up to rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

The Bhoys host Ross County on Saturday afternoon, where the striker should get the chance to add to his already impressive goal tally.
