Former Celtic striker Hartson, who now works as a pundit, has given his take on the 21-year-old and the 23-year-old.

Hartson told The Scottish Sun: “I don’t want to say who’s better, but Edouard is more proven. He’s done it on a more consistent basis.

“He’s scored in Old Firm games — you look at his goal at Ibrox when he popped up and cut inside to score a brilliant winner.

“For now, look at Edouard and he seems to have done it in the bigger games. But you look at Morelos and consistently he’s banging goals in for fun and you can’t deny him.”

Title race

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title for the past eight seasons, and although the Hoops are favourites to clinch the championship this campaign as well, Rangers are giving the Bhoys a stiff competition and are going to take the title race down to the wire.
