Odsonne Edouard is brilliant for many reasons, mainly for the goals and assists he provides Celtic with, but this season he has become a hit for a whole new reason.
Videos of the brilliant chant for the Frenchman went viral on Twitter following Celtic’s opening game of the league season against St Johnstone, and once again after the victory over Motherwell on Saturday, with supporters singing ‘I wanna be Edouard’ to the tune of the Stone Roses’ ‘I Wanna Be Adored.’

And while the chant is excellent, and quite possibly the best chant of the year, the various reaction’s to it on social media have taken it to a new level.
Many supporters have included the chant over videos of various groups of people dancing, and famous clips from TV shows and films – and the results are utterly marvelous:

Those video might just be the best things ever created – until someone films the whole stadium bouncing to it after Eddy scores against CFR Cluj on Tuesday night.
