RANGERS hero Ally McCoist is hoping Celtic star Odsonne Edouard will move on from Parkhead this summer.

The French under-21 international has been key for the Hoops since he sealed a permanent move to Glasgow from PSG in the summer of 2018.

And after scoring 28 goals last season before the campaign was curtailed early, European heavyweights Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle and Leicester have all been linked with a move for his signature.

Parkhead boss Neil Lennon and a number of his squad members have already urged Edouard to sign on for the Hoops’ ten-in-a-row bid, but one man who hopes he moves on in the upcoming window is Rangers legend McCoist.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: "The tell-tale sign, I'm reading a few of the Celtic boys, and they are coming out and asking him not to move, to wait another year.

"No way, I'm clearly of the opposite opinion, get him away, and if he goes to Leicester or Arsenal, I tell you what, they will be getting a right top player."

We told this morning how fellow Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths urged Edouard to stay at the club.

“I want him to be here, 100 per cent,” said Griffiths. “I see rumours all of the time that he is being linked with massive clubs, but don’t forget that we are a massive club as well, so we want him to stay.

“If he stays one more season and plays as well as he has done over the last 18 months, he’d be a big, big asset in us reaching the 10-In-A-Row.

“It’s up to the manager to decide what games we would play and what formations he would like to use.

“But I think he knows that there’s an understanding there and it’s not as if it is something that is going to be chucked together. We know how we are going to play together.

“It’s an interesting one and I’m sure the fans are desperate to watch it in the stands or watch on the TV when we come back to see how we can continue the partnership. Odsonne likes to come short and I like to go long, so we complement each other.”
