Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers will face Neil Lennon’s Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday.
Former Rangers midfielder Ferguson has said that Edouard does not always look interested in games.
However, Ferguson has warned Rangers not to get complacent against the French striker on Sunday afternoon, and has suggested that Steven Gerrard’s side should not allow the 21-year-old to settle in the game.
Ferguson wrote in The Daily Record: “I’d tell him (Katic) and Goldson to put an early marker on Odsonne Edouard who can be such a dangerous customer when he’s allowed to settle into a game.
“Don’t give him time. Don’t let him get into his rhythm in the first 10 minutes because if he’s in the mood you’re in trouble.
“I’m not saying Edouard is the type who chucks it but I do think he can look disinterested from time to time when things aren’t going his way – or when he’s not getting the service he needs from the guys in midfield.”
Edouard does lack consistency in his game and needs to score more goals against the ‘lesser’ sides, but the striker is at his absolute best when it comes to big games, such as Old Firm derby.
According to The Glasgow Evening Times, the striker has scored four goals against Rangers and has bagged 44 in total for Celtic.
The 21-year-old does not always appear to be in games, but he can conjure up moments of magic and is technically brilliant.
One should not be surprised if Edouard scores yet again against Rangers at Ibrox in the Old Firm derby on Sunday.
