Thierry Henry was one of the best strikers in history to ever grace the English Premier League and could score goals with his eyes closed, so when Henry heaps praise on his fellow Frenchman and Celtic’s top goal scorer Odsonne Edouard the world takes notice.

Scotland hero Ally McCoist has revealed how Henry spoke highly of the Celtic striker in conversation and Odsonne is regarded very highly in France where they think he will rise to the top of the footballing world.

Edouard For France

“I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard. He was saying in France in particular (Edouard is admired) and he personally really, really thinks he’s got a chance of going right to the top.”

We all know that Edouard will be very happy with such praise coming from a player that Odsonne wanted to be like as a bhoy, lets hope the Hoops striker uses this as fuel to lead Celtic to that glorious nine in a row.
