Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has revealed Edinson Cavani took him under his wing during the pair’s time together at Paris Saint-Germain.

Edouard has been in impressive form so far this campaign with scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances for Celtic across all competitions and he’s keen to play at the highest level.

“When I was at PSG, he gave me advice every day. Whether it was about my positional sense, my finishing, even my speed, he spoke to me a lot.” Edouard said, according to Evening Times.

“This gave me a massive amount of belief in myself that a great striker like him took time out to speak to me.”

“He basically was responsible for me being a striker and he gave me confidence.

“I was also there with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but he was different. I was a kid and that was it. He didn’t speak the same language as me so it was not easy to communicate.”

“Occasionally, he gave me a few instructions through signs, but there wasn’t a lot of exchanges between us.”

Meanwhile, Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie insists the team will take the title challenge of Kilmarnock serious when the pair meet this weekend.

“We’ll treat Kilmarnock with respect because they are where they are on merit – this isn’t a fluke,” said Christie.

“They’ve played some good football and they’re always such a hard team to come up against, which I’m sure will be the case again this weekend.”

“But the incentive is clear enough for us – win and we’ll be in first place and that’s where we want to be. A lot has been said about the number of games we’re being asked to play at the moment but we just need to win as many of them as possible and, hopefully, by the time we get to the winter break, we’ll be top of the league.”
