ODSONNE EDOUARD has thanked Celtic fans for their support following the news he had tested positive for coronavirus.
The striker will have to self-isolate following the test which he undertook while on duty for the France Under-21 international squad, according to a report on STV.
Edouard will have to remain in his homeland until he gets the all-clear to return to Scotland. Clearly, he is a major doubt for Neil Lennon as he prepares for the visit of Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side for the first Glasgow derby of the season in 10 days’ time.
Supporters shared their anxiety for him on social media and he took to Twitter to tell them he feels good and will be back as soon as he can.
The fans’ favourite tweeted: “Thank you all for your messages of support! I’m fine and I would come back stronger, take care of yourself and your family.”
Edouard is the first Hoops player to test positive for the virus and the club are currently in talks with the Scottish Government over his return.
Ryan Christie, too, could be forced into a 14-day quarantine after coming into contact with Scotland international team-mate Stuart Armstrong who has also tested positive for covid-19, as CQN reported earlier today.
