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

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…
