Kris Commons said on Sky Sports News on Monday morning (11:18am, April 29, 2019) that Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard can be a passenger when he is not at his best.

The former Celtic attacking midfielder believes that the form of the Celtic forward has been hot and cold this season.

According to WhoScored, the 21-year-old has made 20 starts and 10 substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic this season, scoring 14 goals in the process.

The youngster has also scored two goals in eight appearances in the Europa League for the Hoops, according to WhoScored, and found the net against Rangers in the Old Firm derby.

Commons said on Sky Sports News on Monday morning (11:18am, April 29, 2019): “I think the form of Eduaod has been hot and cold. When he is good, he is really good. When he is not, he is a bit of a passenger.”

Better forward needed at Celtic?

Leigh Griffiths has been missing for Celtic for a while, and when the Scotland international is fit and firing, he is one of the best strikers in the Scottish Premiership.

Edouard is a very promising and young striker, but the Frenchman does need to add consistency to his game and needs to be more involved in matches.
