Rodgers delight at debut

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted by the debut of latest recruit Odsonne Edouard.

The nineteen-year-old French striker immediately opened his account in the 4-1 victory at Hamilton Academical having only just arrived on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

"I'm delighted for him. All strikers want to get goals and he's got one and he created one or two other opportunities for himself," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "He received a round of applause from all the players and staff after the game.

"It's difficult for a lad of 19 coming in and not speaking the language," he added. "He's left Paris, which was 30-odd degrees, and trained with us in the rain all week. He's fitted in very well."
