Kris Boyd finally makes Edouard admission as the former Rangers player hails the Celtic striker as best in the league.
It wasn’t that long ago that Boyd would sit-on fence whenever the pundit was asked about who was the better striker Edouard or Morelos. (source)
There were many pundits and even Gerrard himself, who thought that this was going to be the Colombian’s season and that Morelos would finally score goals against Celtic, that never happened.
Odsonne Edouard was the main striker who has proved that he is a big game player, Boyd simply cannot defend Morelos any longer than he has.
Boyd speaks with Sky Sports:
“He’s the outstanding player in the league – a class apart,” said Boyd.
“There’s talk of him going to a mid-table team in England but he should just cut them out and go straight to the top with any of the big guns. He’s got everything. He glides past defenders as if they are not there. He’s got skill, although perhaps one criticism can be his finishing, he tries to place everything in the corners. He’s not from the same finishing school as someone like Leigh Griffiths but in terms of the all round package, he’s the best player in Scotland.
“Yes, he has the supply line from his team-mates but you’ve got to get into those positions. He’ll go right to the top in England – he doesn’t need to prove himself in that regard. If I was Celtic I would hold out for a record-breaking fee as he’ll surpass the £20m for Moussa Dembele. He’s destined for the top.”SOURCE BOYD
The Rangers striker has failed to put in a good shift since returning from the club’s winter break, Morelos has been given numerous chances by Steven Gerrard and failed to repay the former Liverpool captain. (source)
Celtic have thrived this season with Edouard leading the front-line and with the added help of Griffiths since January, both strikers have been deadly for Neil Lennon and the Hoops squad.
