ODSONNE EDOUARD admits he can't wait to celebrate nine-in-a-row with his teammates at Celtic.

The French youngster starred for the Hoops this season as he netted an impressive 28 goals in 45 appearances.

And despite transfer speculation surrounding his future, Edouard insists he is fully concentrated on getting back out on the pitch for Celtic.

He told the Celtic View: "I’m absolutely delighted to win nine in-a-row.

“It’s been a great season for the team and for me, so I’m very happy. Without question, this team deserves to be champions.

“It’s a good decision and the right decision. We’re living in strange times at the moment, it’s a strange life.

"The most important thing is the security and safety of all of the players, all of the fans, their families, so to call the league in the way it was called was a good decision.

"But, given how we played on the pitch, we absolutely deserve to be champions.

“The most important thing to me, personally, is to get the chance to celebrate the title with the fans and my team-mates.

“Then I want to be back playing football as well, because I miss it so much.

"I can’t wait to celebrate but I also can’t wait to be back playing. It’s been very, very hard to be away from football for so long.”

Edouard finished as the top scorer in the Premiership, but with the season curtailed early he admits he was disappointed not to reach his personal target.

He added: “On a personal level, I was frustrated that we didn’t get to finish the league on the pitch. I think every one of the players is the same.

"I don’t normally share my personal targets, but this season it was 30 goals minimum, especially the longer time went on.

"I’m sure if the league had continued as normal I could have scored 30 goals.

“But, the most important thing is the title. Celtic winning the title, to win nine in-a-row, which we did - that’s good for me. I’m happy with this.”
