Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has hailed Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard as ‘one of the best’ players in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers, who have already clinched the SPFL title, won 4-1 against their Old Firm rivals to maintain their unbeaten run in the league.
It has been a terrific season for the Ibrox club, who also did well in the Europa League.
However, Rangers needed a strong performance following their disappointment in the domestic cup competitions.
The Gers boss was analysing Jack Simpson’s performance for Rangers.
The 24-year-old defender started the match, with the Gers missing the likes of Filip Helander and Leon Balogun due to injury.
Gerrard has suggested that Simpson did a brilliant job and that he will get better. It was a tough challenge for him to compete against Edouard.
Gerrard told Herald Scotland: “He had a couple of moments within the game. We’ll analyse his performance and so will he, because he’s a kid who wants to get better.
“I thought he did a lot of things well. He was up against one of the best players in the league in Edouard, who gets assisted well by Elyounoussi and Turnbull. It was a tough challenge for him.”
This has been a disappointing campaign for Celtic, but Edouard has done well for them.
The French striker has scored 16 goals and provided five assists in the Scottish Premiership this season.
He has a contract at the club until 2022, and chances are high that Celtic will sell him in the summer transfer window.
