Chris Sutton has told BT Sport, during their live coverage of Celtic’s match against Red Bull Leipzig, that Odsonne Edouard was like a different player for Brendan Rodgers’ side last night.

Edouard led the line brilliantly for Celtic and scored the winner, as the Bhoys picked up a hugely important victory over Red Bull Leipzig.

 

Sutton had found Edouard’s performances to be inconsistent at Parkhead, but he thought the youngster was brilliant last night.

And Sutton said: “Is this the making of Edouard in a Celtic shirt? He’s been inconsistent but he’s been a different player, a different animal tonight.”

Sutton also tweeted about the Celtic forward’s display after the contest had finished.

Edouard’s goal was a simple one, after some great work from Ryan Christie, but it was vital.

Celtic really needed the three points to keep their hopes of progressing in Europe alive.

The Bhoys took the lead early on when Kieran Tierney drilled home, but they were pegged back by Leipzig in the second half.

The German side were not level for long though, as Celtic responded almost immediately, with Edouard prodding home.

Celtic are still in third place in their Europa League group, but they are now level on points with Leipzig.
