Michael Stewart reckons Odsonne Edouard is a better option for Manchester United than the players they've already got at their disposal.

Celtic's top marksman scored another double away to Motherwell yesterday evening in an impressive 4-0 win for the visitors at Fir Park. The Frenchman bookended the scoring with a slick finish before curling in a beautiful free-kick to seal the points.

The strikes take the 22-year-old's tally to 24 goals in 37 appearances for Celts for the season. Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are missing an out-and-out goalscorer with Marcus Rashford injured and Anthony Martial not quite firing on all cylinders this campaign.

Stewart, on pundit duty for BT Sport, said last night: "Manchester United don't have a striker, Odsonne Edouard would walk into that team."

Asked if the Hoops star was better than the likes of Martial and Mason Greenwood, Stewart replied: "Yeah, I think so."

Agreeing with the former Hearts and Hibs midfielder, ex-Celtic and Scotland boss Gordon Strachan also made the case for Edouard, claiming the forward could move directly from Glasgow to a "top team" in the English Premier League.

And he likened him to a world footballing great. "[Edouard] reminds me of Dennis Bergkamp," Strachan said on BT Sport. "He can do what Bergkamp could do, perhaps at a younger age.

"You look at the players who have left Celtic. Virgil van Dijk, Victor Wanyama, they've gone to Southampton. No disrespect to Southampton but Edouard can go to the top, a top team, right now."
