Neil Lennon has praised Odsonne Edouard in the aftermath of what he described as a “remarkable” achievement, labelling the striker a “superstar” after his double helped Celtic win a third consecutive domestic treble.
The Hoops secured their unprecedented treble-treble after coming from a goal down to beat Hearts 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final in a victory that saw Celtic offer Lennon the chance to become the Hoops’ next permanent manager.
The Northern Irishman took interim charge earlier this season following Brendan Rodgers’ controversial departure to Leicester City, and praised Celtic’s “remarkable” achievement following their win over Hearts, BBC Sport report.
You’ll never see this again. Edouard’s a superstar. In footballing parlance, it’s impossible [to put it into words]. That’s nine trophies out of nine. It is remarkable.
They’ve done themselves great justice and they’ve done the club proud.
Edouard equalised from the penalty spot for Celtic after Ryan Edwards had given Hearts a surprise lead at Hampden Park, and scored the winning goal eight minutes from time with his second of the afternoon.
