NEIL LENNON needs to watch he doesn’t alienate his star striker with comments he made this week about the player’s head being turned by speculation this summer.
Odsonne Edouard has not been himself this season and the Celtic manager decided to say as much in an interview which throws down the gauntlet to Eddy, basically saying, if you fancy a move away, you better start playing to your potential.

Eddy has had injuries this season and lost the best part of a month due to contracting the virus. There’s no doubt he can offer more, but sometimes coming out in the media isn’t the right answer.
Yes, some fans will pump their fist and agree with the sentiment of what Lenny said, some even condoning making his feelings known on a public forum.
However, Celtic and Neil Lennon must be careful. The manager called the team out after the Ferencvaros defeat and didn’t get a team united in return. Our performances have been spotty this season and it’s clear the team don’t react to public dressing down.
Neil mentioned he and Eddy will have a talk today ahead of the next run of fixtures and get on the same page. That would do the world of good!
