In a social media post, the club confirmed Edouard alongside Georgios Samaras and former Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

The awards will be held just a day after the Cinch Premiership clash against theRangers, three points would certainly help Celtic towards a third successive title.

Edouard left Celtic in the summer of 2021 having scored 87 times and assisted 39 times for the club since arriving in a £9m deal back in 2017. Initially signed on a season-long loan, Edouard went from Celtic’s third choice behind Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths to a mainstay in the starting XI. He scored a brace as Celtic beat Rangers 5-0 to win 7IAR and conjured up some incredible moments during his time in the Hoops.

At various junctures in his Celtic career, Edouard was linked with a move to a number of top European teams. However, it never transpired and in that final summer at Celtic, Palace were the only ones willing to pay up for the Frenchman.

It will be good to see him, even if it is just for an evening!
