BRENDAN RODGERS believes Odsonne Edouard WILL be fit to play in the Salzburg game next week after coming off in the first half during Celtic’s win over Aberdeen.
The player took a sore one from Scott McKenna who lunged at the striker.
What was more ludicrous than the foul was the fact Bobby Madden waved it off like there was nothing to see.
It was an absolute joke of a challenge and the only debate over it was if Eddy was fouled inside or outside the box.
Speaking after the game, the Celtic manager said Eddy had suffered a dead leg but should be fine.
Asked if he thought the incident was a penalty, the Irishman was fair and said he personally thought it was a free kick but was in no doubt that a foul had been committed.
🗣️ BR: "I didn’t think it was a penalty, but I thought it was a free-kick. When young Scott jumps off the floor like that then the very minimum it's a free-kick. It gave @Oedouard22 a dead leg in which he couldn’t carry on." #CELABE— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) September 29, 2018
