ODSONNE Edouard last night revealed he hasn’t been subjected to any racist abuse during his two-and-a-half years at Celtic and is loving life in Glasgow. 

Aberdeen defender Shay Logan and Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos have both been in the news this season after being targeted for vile abuse on social media and at matches respectively.

However, Edouard, the French striker who yesterday picked up the Ladbrokes Premiership Player of the Month award for January, stressed he hasn’t encountered any problems in this country.  

“Personally I have never had any experience of that,” he said. “If I had then you would all know. But I haven’t had it and I don’t get involved in issues that don’t really concern me. Life is good. I live well in Glasgow and I really like the city.”

Meanwhile, Edouard, who has scored seven goals in six games since play restarted after the winter shutdown, has claimed the defeat to Rangers at Parkhead in December was a positive for Celtic. 

The 2-1 loss meant Steven Gerrard’s side moved to within two points of Neil Lennon’s team at the top of the 
Ladbrokes Premiership with a game in hand. 

But Scott Brown and his team-mates have responded brilliantly to the painful loss and are now seven points clear.

“The defeat against Rangers did us more good than harm,” he said. “We had to question ourselves. Once we returned from Dubai we knew we had to bounce back and that it would be hard. But it’s going well.”
