CHARLIE ADAM, the skipper of the Dundee team walloped 6-0 at Parkhead last week, has scoffed at Celtic’s £20million valuation of Odsonne Edouard.

The former Scotland international midfielder, who had a six-year spell at Ibrox, insisted the Hoops won’t even get HALF that fee for the French striker who cost £9million when he signed from Paris Saint-Germain in June 2018.

Adam is clearly unimpressed with the Hoops’ top scorer last season with 22 goals. The 23-year-old marksman is in the last year of his contract and has been the subject of transfer speculation with Brighton reported to be showing an interest while there are only 17 shopping days left in this transfer window.

NICE AND EASY DOES IT…Odsonne Edouard clips home a penalty-kick for Celtic’s sixth goal against Charlie Adam’s Dundee.

The south coast club have just picked up £50million from Arsenal for England international central defender Ben White and could direct £20million of that windfall in the direction of Celtic for Edouard.

However, 35-year-old Adam is certain the ambitions of his old Glasgow rivals will fall short while PSG await 40 per cent of any profits on their former prospect.

The Dens Park captain, speaking on the PLZ Football Show, said: “You’re still going to get £5million to £8million for Edouard. It’s still not going to be double figures

“The Celtic fans can come for me again if they like.”
