Celtic manager Neil Lennon has hailed Odsonne Edouard after the forward’s performance in Celtic’s 2-1 win over Rangers in the Old Firm derby.
The 21-year-old opened the scoring at Celtic Park, before James Forrest hit a late winner for Celtic following Ryan Kent’s equaliser.
Rangers had been reduced to 10-men in a fiery encounter, after Alfredo Morelos elbowed Scott Brown in the first-half.
Winger Ryan Kent was also fortunate to escape punishment following another incident involving Brown, whilst Andy Halliday also received a red card following clashes between the players at full time.
Celtic manager Lennon was pleased with his side’s performance, and praised the contribution of Frenchman Edouard.
“We’ve come away with a fantastic win against a very motivated Rangers side,” Lennon told the BBC.
“I can’t ask for any more from my players.
“Rangers’ goal made everyone a little anxious. We should have been on the front foot but it was all or nothing for them (Rangers) today.
“At 1-0 the game’s always in the balance even against 10 men. We looked a little naive at times but we regalvanised and scored a great goal to win.
“I thought Odsonne Edouard was the best player on the pitch by a country mile.”
