Neil Lennon has provided Celtic fans with an update on Odsonne Edouard’s availability.

The striker missed recent draws at Celtic Park against Hibs and Livingston as 13 players were required to self-isolate, but he missed out again at the Tony Macaroni Arena despite the majority of Celtic’s key players returning.

Neil Lennon’s men were held to a 2-2 draw at a snowy Tony Macaroni Arena, leaving them 20 points behind in the title race and piling further pressure on the manager.

Numerous clubs have been credited with an interest in the 23-year-old, with West Ham and Real Madrid among the latest names to be mentioned.

The French Under-21 star has entered the final 18 months of his contract, but despite failing to hit the heights of previous seasons remains a key player for the champions this season.

The Scottish Sun report that Lennon addressed Edouard’s absence in Livingston by confirming that he was missing due to a knee injury.

They have Lennon stating that he expects the man who has scored 11 goals in 23 games this season to be available again for Wednesday’s match against Hamilton Accies at Celtic Park.

The manager, meanwhile, has insisted that he has no intention of quitting.

As quoted by Sky Sports following the draw against David Martindale’s side, Lennon said: “I won’t walk away, absolutely not. I’ve put too much into this. Too much of my life. And a month ago we won the treble.

“If the club have to make a decision then they have to make a decision. You’re asking the wrong guy about my position.

“I’m fed up answering it really. Everyone is interested in my job. You keep asking if I’m going to be here. I will be until I’m told otherwise.”
