Celtic's Arsenal transfer target Edouard continues superb international goal glut with stunning chip on France U21 duty

CELTIC star Odsonne Edouard has extended his incredible scoring streak for France U21s as he claimed his 17th goal in just 13 games for his country.

Arsenal loanee Matteo Guendouzi opened the scoring after 17 minutes on matchday two in the Under-21 Euros.

However, once again it was the Celtic striker who stole the show with a beautiful goal.

Full back Faitout Maouassa played a superb ball down the left channel, with the hitman able to run in on goal.

He took the ball in his stride and in typical ice-cool fashion chipped goalkeeper Elias Rafn Ólafsson from an incredibly tight angle.

It was the attacker's second goal of the campaign.

The Hoops frontman won and then knocked in a penalty against Russia in Hungary, beating them 2-0.

Clubs all over Europe are now monitoring the former PSG man closely ahead of a possible move away from Parkhead in the summer.

Among them is Arsenal, who have been strongly linked with a move, seeing Edouarde as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

He has been back to his best of late after a difficult season that included the player contracting the coronavirus at one point.

TICKET PLEA

Elsewhere, the Celtic Trust is calling for Hoops season ticket holders who forked out £550 to watch their team during 2020-21 to be handed back £460 worth of shares in the club.

The supporters grouping put a proposal to the Parkhead club's board at the start of this month for fans to receive shares in lieu of refunds for matches which they have been unable to attend.

The scale of uptake remains unclear – as does the scheme's reception by the PLC board – but the trust last week released a Q and A on their website to outline the detail of the proposal.

They claim terms and conditions were changed last summer to limit the club' liability for fans with virtual season tickets being unable to access matches in person, but argue the club is still bound by a "moral duty to ensure that supporters receive the full value of their season ticket".

They claim that implementing this proposal WON'T cost the club "over and above a small amount of administrative costs".

And they argue that it WILL help restore goodwill and "lay the foundations" for successful season ticket sales in 2021-22.
