Neil Lennon Confirms Odsonne Edouard is Now Celtic’s Only Fit Striker

Neil Lennon has confirmed Celtic currently only have just one fit striker, after Vakoun Bayo picked up a knock against Aberdeen.

The Hoops have been pretty reliant on the in-from Odsonne Edouard, who has 12 goals in 20 appearances in all competitions this season, and added to his tally against Aberdeen in Sunday’s 4-0 win at Pittodrie.

The club’s No9 Leigh Griffiths has struggled to regain his full fitness for much of the season, and is currently recovering from a thigh strain, and news of Bayo’s injury leaves Celtic short-handed when it comes to attacking options, as Lennon admitted this afternoon:

Celtic play St Mirren at home on Wednesday night, before facing Hibs in the semi-final of the Betfred Cup on Saturday evening, and then travelling to Rome for a Europa League re-match with Lazio on Thursday week.

What other options do you think Lennon could consider deploying in attack?

And do you think a lack of options up-front could eventually cost Celtic in the coming weeks?

Let us know in the comments section below…
