Celtic legend Charlie Nicholas says Odsonne Edouard IRRITATES him - but he's still the best striker in the country.

The Frenchman has started the season on fire with eight goals from 14 matches in all competitions so far.

He also won August's Player of the Month and continues to improve.

For Nicholas that answers the question of who's better between Edouard and Rangers star Alfredo Morelos.

But the ex-Hoops star complained that the Celtic man still manages to look disinterested even when he's playing well - and it doesn't sit right with Nicholas.

In his Daily Express column, the former Arsenal ace said: "Odsonne Edouard is the top striker in Scotland but Alfredo Morelos is starting to close the gap.

"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.

"The Frenchman has shone on the big stage and he has a growing composure in front of goal.

"I can see Edouard continuing to improve and leaving Celtic in a year or so for at least £25m.

"Edouard and Morelos are top-class players and we should cherish them while they're in the Premiership.

"There isn't much between Morelos and Edouard, but Rangers are in a better position to cope if their star striker is missing."
