Celtic are the gift that keeps on giving this season and Rangers fans have once again been buckled at our rivals as a Parkhead player is linked to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
French U21 forward Odsonne Edouard is undoubtedly a talented player but the ex-PSG striker has been on pretty woeful form this season so far.
It hasn’t stopped Edouard being linked with the legendary club as a Galacticos’ fansite link s the striker to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
Defensa Central is a popular Real Madrid fan site and they’re claiming in an exclusive that Zidane is considering a move for Edouard, 23, to replace frontman Karim Benzema at the Bernebeu.
That story also claims the wantaway striker would cost Real between £17.8m and £22.2m (€20m and €25m)
It’s since been picked up by the Scottish tabloid press and the link is causing a bit of a stir in Glasgow and beyond.
Rangers fans – whilst they generally admit Edouard’s talent – are in stitches at the suggestion the “£30m man” could move to Real Madrid this season.
Conversely, Celtic fans everywhere delude themselves to the value and future of a player who cost them £9m and who only has 18 months left on his contract [Sky Sports].
Taking to Twitter, some sections of the Rangers support were not having it one bit as the conversation continued around those links to the Frenchman:

It’s not the only Celtic related story catching the eye of Rangers fans this week as plenty of Dubai-related drama continues to stream out of the club.
Rangers fans have also been reacting to the comments of Scott Brown as the Celtic captain defends Neil Lennon and claims 10IAR is still on the table.
