Kenny Miller has admitted to BT Sport that he has changed his mind about Odsonne Edouard at Celtic.

Miller criticised Edouard for being too static in the box last season at Celtic, but the striker has been in wonderful form this season.

The French striker opened the scoring for the Bhoys last night in their 2-0 win over Cluj.

And Miller admits that Edouard is now impressing him more and more.

 

The former Celtic striker said: “He’s getting better and better.

“I was a bit critical of his movement last year, he wasn’t getting into the areas that he should be. But he’s right in the mix there, in the middle of the six yard box.”

Edouard now has nine goals in just 16 games for Celtic this season, with his performance highly impressive.

Edouard is already attracting admiring glances from sides across Europe, with Celtic sure to be set to face a test to keep hold of him.

Neil Lennon will hope that Edouard can continue to perform to a similar standard throughout the season, as he really could be the main man to fire Celtic to success.

Edouard and Celtic will next be in action at the weekend, when Lennon’s side take on Livingston.
