Neil Lennon has told Celtic fans he will not risk Odsonne Edouard this weekend if he doesn’t believe the player is good to go for Sunday.
This comes after the pictures of the player training on Friday after missing Thursday’s session while he spent time with the physio.
Celtic are without a fit recognised striker with Leigh Griffiths seemingly still not fit enough to start any of the last three matches.
Meaning there’s still a chance Lewis Morgan could start up front for Celtic at Hampden against Rangers in a cup final.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon says Odsonne Edouard trained again today, still a “day by day” assessment. He won’t take a gamble on him for Sunday, will only play if fit… pic.twitter.com/2GPKS4sydL

Celtic are looking for their tenth domestic trophy in a row but it looks like they might have to do without their talisman.
Edouard has been pivotal in these fixtures and in cup finals. It would be a huge blow if he doesn’t make it however Neil Lennon knows Eddy is so important for the rest of the season.
