Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy dropped any claims that striker Odson Edward would lose focus in the summer transfer window as he sought to leave the club.
Citing the Daily Record, speculation began surrounding the Frenchman after the agent changed hands during the week. However, during the pre-match press conference of the match against HBS on Monday, Kennedy did not offer any advice on Edward’s focus and responsibility for the cause.
When Kennedy expressed concern about the striker’s motivation, he was asked: “No, not at all.
“We had the same rumors and everything as last time, but Odson is fully committed to what we are doing here.
“We usually chat and discuss with him and he is very excited to be successful here.
“He understands what everyone inside the club and Celtic gave him. He has been given a real platform to become what he is and he is extremely grateful for that.
“Whether it’s this summer or three or four years, Odson will give Edward what he’s got to do with what he’s trying to do here.”
So far this season, the 22-year-old striker has not been the best to fully represent the Celtic season.
In recent weeks, he has begun to get back some form to find the net on multiple shows in December.
After giving himself an extremely tough job, it will be important for Edward to get us back on track when it comes to winning the league title for the tenth time in a row.
Hopefully, starting the game on Monday evening at Celtic Park against Edinburgh we get to see him at his best again.
