Celtic Striker Odsonne Edouard Hits Back at Charlie Nicholas Over Criticism of His Goal Celebration

Celtic Striker Odsonne Edouard Hits Back at Charlie Nicholas Over Criticism of His Goal Celebration

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has hit back at Charlie Nicholas this afternoon after the Sky Sports pundit criticised his goal celebration.

The French hit-man continued his excellent start to the season by banging in two more goals against Kilmarnock in the Hoops’ 3-1 win on Sunday afternoon, taking his tally for the campaign to eight in 14 appearances so far.

Edouard has been lauded as a potential superstar by many pundits but it seems ex-Celtic and Arsenal forward Nicholas isn’t entirely happy with Edouard’s recent displays, particularly the way he chooses to celebrate his goals.

Nicholas was quoted as saying via the Daily Record: “The Celtic frontman is a better all-round footballer, although he has this slightly annoying habit of looking too casual and uninterested a lot of the time.

“It’s as if he can’t be too fussed in the so-called lesser games. The thing that irritates me more than anything is his lack of celebration when he scores.

“It should be the greatest feeling in the world but Odsonne doesn’t show that.”

Well, it seems the comments have been relayed to Edouard, and the 21-year-old isn’t particularly happy:

What do you think of the potential spat?

Is Edouard right to stick up for himself, and why would Nicholas even be bothered by his celebration anyway?
