CELTIC bosses have no fears over Odsonne Edouard’s impending court date interfering with their pursuit of the striker.

The 20-year-old French ace, valued in a deal that could reach £7million with add-ons, impressed Brendan Rodgers during his season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

Talks have already been held between the clubs for the frontman who is still at the centre of proceedings after an incident in February last year.

Edouard, who was on a temporary transfer at Toulouse, and his team-mate Mathieu Cafaro were identified by police as being involved in an episode when a passer-by was injured by a shot from an air gun.

Last summer, the French court handed Edouard a suspended four-month prison sentence and a £5,200 fine.

The Toulouse Court of Appeal is now considering the case and will make a final judgement on June 28.

However, the situation will not deflect the interest of Rodgers and the champions.

Edouard has already expressed his regret at being part of the incident.

The Hoops have until June 16 to reach an agreement with PSG.
