Michael Stewart says that Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is good enough for Manchester United.

Michael Stewart has admitted in The Scottish Sun that he was wrong about Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.

The former Manchester United midfielder has said that he was not sure when Celtic spent £9 million on the French striker.

The BT Sport pundit believes that the 22-year-old is so good that he will walk into the United team right now and will make the Red Devils better.

Stewart wrote in The Scottish Sun: “I saw Declan Gallagher described him as unplayable after Wednesday’s game and he was right. I’ll be honest, when Celtic paid £9million to sign him from PSG I wasn’t sure.

“Don’t get me wrong, I thought he had talent. It just seemed a lot of money to me at the time. Now, to be fair, it looks like a BARGAIN. This is a guy going all the way to the top.”

Stewart added: “This is a guy who would walk into the Manchester United side right now and make it better.”
