The CFB Verdict: Celtic vs Hamilton

Edouard shows why he is the best player in Scotland

A prominent former Celtic player questioned Odsonne Edouard’s attitude this week. The Frenchman answered such criticism in the best possible manner for Celtic by scoring a hat trick.

For me he is the best player in Scotland and could easily play for an elite European side. However, Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board have to ensure that regardless of the offer they receive this summer that he has to stay at the club as without him, Celtic’s title push could take a big hit.

Hamilton can prove everyone wrong again

5-1 sounds like an absolute battering but Hamilton showed a lot of fighting spirit especially in the first half. Brian Rice will be encouraged by that and the performance of young Andy Winter. Defensively he won’t be happy with the performance of Edwards but Celtic can cut most teams open.

Ensure they are more defensively solid and they’ll prove everyone wrong again this season as going forward Brian Rice’s team are always a threat.

Full back attack

Greg Taylor and Jeremy Frimpong were superb going forward today for Celtic and they’ll be a threat to any side in the league. I agree with Neil Lennon that both need to be reminded of their defensive duties but they’ll only improve as time goes on and at last Celtic look as if they have a steady replacement for Kieran Tierney.
