Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has scored his 16th goal for France’s under-21s after netting in their win over Russia at the weekend – and Rangers fans have ripped into the 23-year-old Frenchman.
The Celtic star continues to play for the French side due to a quirk in the rules which allow players to play based on their age at the start of a particular campaign rather than on the day of the match itself.
At 23 though, he’s pushing the limits and with Covid restrictions playing havoc with the football calendar, it’s let to the situation where he is still playing under-21s several months past his 23rd birthday.
He was at the centre of a cheat storm in last week’s Old Firm draw, throwing himself theatrically to the ground in a desperate bid to win a penalty – only to pick up a booking for his trouble.
Rangers fans were quick to mock the striker over his strike for the French under-21s
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
Meanwhile, a Rangers star’s World Cup hopes have been boosted after a second consecutive impressive international display.
