The Hoops went into tonight’s Premiership tie at home to the Steelmen looking to retake their lead at the top of the table, and it looked like the three points were secured by half-time after goals from Anthony Ralston, Scott Sinclair and Mikey Johnston.
Johnston’s goal was the highlight of the first-half but the youngster was only on the field as a sub for Edouard, who pulled up with what looked like a hamstring injury.
In the end, it turned out Edouard was actually struggling with an abductor problem, and his manager was keeping his cards close to his chest after the full-time whistle.
Speaking via the BBC, the Bhoys boss explained: “He just felt a tightness around his abductor.
“We’ll just see how that is.
“It’s a concern when you lose any player but he’s played a lot of games and we’ve not been able to rest him so it’s probably a little bit of fatigue, but we’ll see when he is in the next 24 hours.”
With a showdown against arch-rivals Rangers on the horizon on December 29, and Leigh Griffiths out for the foreseeable future as he deals with personal issues, how important is it that Edouard recovers quickly?
