Hoops fans have a track record of coming up with inventive ways of re-purposing popular songs to fit Celtic action, from Just Can't Get Enough by Depeche Mode to The Logical Song by Scooter.

One of the most recent is a rendition of I Wanna Be Adored by The Stone Roses, which has been switched, rather obviously, to I Wanna Be Edouard.

Now being heard at the majority of matches, as well as going viral on social media, it's been the soundtrack to Edouard's incredible recent form.

He admits it's something he is relishing.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said; "I am really pleased about it. It pushes me on to be my best when I am on the pitch. I hope it is going to continue."

It's just one aspect of life in Scotland he is enjoying, also telling reporters that he is loving being in and around Glasgow away from football.

He said: "I really like it here, I actually really like the city, it is a great city. I feel I have adapted well. I really enjoy being in Scotland, I like playing football here.

"I am a simple guy, I am humble. If a fan stops me in the street and wants an autograph or a photo I will do it, no problem. It’s not hard. On the contrary, it’s nice."

 

Earning his praise

Edouard is no false idol at Celtic either, in fact he's worked hard to earn his current status as the club's undoubted number one striker.

During his initial loan spell from Paris Saint-Germain he found opportunities limited under Brendan Rodgers, a natural result of Moussa Dembele's and Leigh Griffiths' presence.

Since his compatriot left though he's grown in stature, confidence and ability, now showing an all-round game approaching the levels of Dembele at his best in the Hoops.

With 23 goals last season and six goals so far in this one, he's well on his way to becoming even more of a favourite with Celtic supporters.
