Celtic fans are looking forward to the prospect of facing Rangers' Filip Helander next month.
Both Old Firm giants meet in a League Cup final at Hampden Park on December 8.
Only goal difference separates top-of-the-table Celtic from Steven Gerrard's Rangers in the Scottish Premiership standings.
As a result, the showpiece at Hampden could be a truly classic final, such is the competitiveness between both sides.
But Celtic supporters are hoping that Gerrard starts Helander.
The Rangers centre-back, a £3.5 million summer signing [The Scottish Sun], has looked a very good buy, but if he does have a weakness then it's undeniably his pace.
The towering Swede got exposed on a couple of occasions during this afternoon's 3-1 win at Hamilton.
Here's how Hoops fans reacted to his performance:
Please tell me Gerrard is planning on starting Helander in the cup final. Edouard will run him ragged.— Adn (@MourinhoEra_) November 24, 2019
Edouard will have a total field day up against Helander in a fortnight's time— SM (@SM1967_) November 24, 2019
Literally thinking this every single time he came into focus on the camera. Total donkey. Unbelievable how they’ve not even recognised this— Aidan (@aidanarr_67) November 24, 2019
So helander isn’t a bombscare? Completely dragged out of position for the first goal and nowhere to be seen when the Hamilton forward missed an Open goal— Ryan (@Ryan39377585) November 24, 2019
All I know is that defence of yours is getting torn to pieces at hampden and keep hyping up helander cause he’s poor and keeps him in the team— Ryan (@Ryan39377585) November 24, 2019
Odsonne Edouard must be looking forward to the prospect of facing Goldson & Helander— ÉtienneFI - #MAWGPFI (@EtienneBojan) November 24, 2019
Which is fine against Hamilton. But play like that especially in defence against Celtic and Edouard would have a field day.— Never Will ️ (@OneForColin) November 24, 2019
Will Odsonne Edouard tear the Rangers stalwart to shreds? In a word, no.
Just because he isn't the quickest, it doesn't mean that Helander is a poor defender. In fact, he is a very talented one and Celtic boss Neil Lennon will know that it won't be easy to exploit him.
