Odsonne Edouard has been so impressive even Alex Rae names him as player of the year

As is often the case with the coverage of Scottish Football, we’ve been subjected to a budget version of what’s on offer for the Premier League.

While many viewers may have been concerned that Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher would be insufferable in their bias towards their previous clubs, they’ve actually shown the ability to be insightful, entertaining and fairly level headed when talking about Man United or Liverpool.

That’s the opposite in Scotland, where the TV companies have just subjected us to former players who show no insight and completely lack the ability to put their loyalties aside for the benefit of the viewer.

It’s hard to say who is worst out of Alex Rae or Kris Boyd, but it’s painfully excruciating to watch either.

That means it’s a massive surprise that Rae has named Odsonne Edouard as his player of the season in a piece by The Sun.

Of course any impartial fan can see that the Frenchman is the best player in the country just now, and it’s clear that’s he’s destined for a much higher level.

Speaking about his choice Rae said the following:

“I’m going with Edouard partly because of his level of consistency throughout the year. In terms of the goals, they speak for themselves.

“But in terms of the way Celtic play, the fact his link-up is so good he can play as an out-and-out number nine and with a striker equally as good That’s the mark of a good player.

“But over the piece he deserves it.”

Many may have expected him to try and shoehorn a player from the Rangers into the conversation, but they also asked former Celtic player Mark Wilson who also picked Eddy.

He’s been phenomenal this season and has played a major role in putting Celtic on the verge of a ninth straight title, so let’s hope he sticks around for at least one more.
