Celtic fans were disappointed to see Odsonne Edouard miss out of the entire squad last night as the Hoops were held at Livingston.

Fears grew over the Frenchman's future after he was left out, with speculation running rampant about contract discussions and potential sales.

Manager Neil Lennon, however, has confirmed that Edouard was out with a knee injury but is expected to return against Hamilton Accies next week. Edouard has 18 months left on his deal at Parkhead but a source close to the player has told Herald and Times Sport he is 'unlikely' to sign a new deal.

We also understand that he is not expected to leave the club this month and will likely wait until summer to weigh up his options.

Celts hope to double their money at least on the former PSG striker after spending £9million on the signing back in 2018. He has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal, Leicester City and AC Milan in recent months, though he is not expected to leave Glasgow this month.

Edouard has scored 72 goals in 150 appearances for Celtic.
