Celtic legend and current ambassador Davie Hay has dismissed any suggestions there’s a debate over who the better striker is – Odsonne Edouard of Alfredo Morelos (Try and not to laugh).

For some reason, there’s a compulsion to compare and a flimsy attempt by those of a blue persuasion to try and pitch the idea the Columbian is a cut above Edouard. The striker himself is making a mockery of that idea on international duty this week as well as the sharp contrast in both players Glasgow Derby fortunes.

Edouard is a man for the big occasions, someone who can put the ball in the back of the net when Celtic really need him to. He won Celtic the Scottish Cup in May, he has won countless other games and even one at Ibrox with ten men. Alfredo Morelos has scored no goals against Celtic in eleven attempts and he’s had an open goal on more than one occasion.

Celtic fans who only watch the Ibrox side when they play Celtic just can’t fathom how Morelos manages to score on a semi-regular basis against other sides. He just doesn’t do it against bigger teams.

Davie Hay agrees and wrote this in his Evening Times column.

“There has been a lot of talk recently about who the best striker in Scotland is, but I think that the Old Firm game should have laid that particular debate to rest for a while at least.

“All of the talk in the run-up to the game was how Alfredo Morelos was on fire, and although it was a surprise to see him start the game on the bench, there had also been a lot of chat about the red-hot form of Jermain Defoe.

“As it turned out, neither Defoe nor Morelos when he came on were able to lay much of a glove on a Celtic defence that was hugely inexperienced in the fixture, while Odsonne Edouard had the regular Rangers defensive partnership of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic – who had also been getting rave reviews – in a flap for much of the afternoon.”
