Some Celtic stars have not been rated very favourably by EA Sports.
Celtic fans have taken issue with the FIFA 20 ratings of stars such as Odsonne Edouard and Marian Shved, after the most recent verdict on the Hoops came to light.
The video game releases later this month, but the stats for Celtic stars have been made public following the release of a demo promoting the annual franchise.

Top of the tree for Celtic is James Forrest, closely followed by Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and Scott Brown.
After that things get a little perplexing. Not only is Odsonne Edouard said to be of the same ability as Leigh Griffiths, but also Scott Sinclair.
Anyone who watches the Hoops regularly will know how far removed that is from reality.
The Frenchman has been in lethal form throughout 2019, scoring massive goals and performing with an all-round game well beyond that duo.
Jack Hendry claims the honour as the least rated player, with prospects Mikey Johnston, Marian Shved and Daniel Arzani just ahead of him.
Strange ratings for players in FIFA is not a new phenomenon. Outside the top five European leagues, things get a little patchy in terms of EA Sport's accuracy.
Some Celtic fans have been left seriously unhappy with it all though, taking to Twitter this week to share their thoughts...
Those ratings are an embarrassment. How can they rate players if they don't even watch them play ? where do they even get these stats from, a random number generator ?— PaddyBoy (@Paddyboy124) September 10, 2019
Jullien been done dirty there, he was a gold last year and hasn’t merited a -2 rating— Jacko (@RyanJackson_21) September 10, 2019
Forrest and Jullien's card are a joke.— Shaun (@TheTweetofShaun) September 10, 2019
That’s awful. Shveds rating is an actual embarrassment. He was player of a year in a league that literally has 80+ rated players. He scores screamers literally every week over there and gets 60 shooting. Crazy.— Robbie Lynch (@RobbieLynch1995) September 10, 2019
How is Edouard still silver?!— Ryan (@ryan7_cfc) September 10, 2019
Edouard a silver 74 is an absolute joke if you ask me— Loch-Bolingoli (@LochLustig) September 10, 2019
They have probably never watched a Celtic game with those ratings— . (@magicofceltic) September 10, 2019
Eddy’s been had here, James should be higher too tbh— Henrik (@HenkGlav) September 10, 2019
