Boss praises hat-trick hero

Manager Brendan Rodgers praised hat-trick hero Odsonne Edouard for an "exceptional" display during the 5-1 thrashing of Motherwell.

The on loan Paris Saint-Germain teenager struck a superb treble in only his third start for the champions.

Substitute James Forrest also help himself to a couple of goals as the two sides clashed for a third time inside a week.

"Young Odsonne was top class. Take away his goals and his overall game was at a really high level," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "He scored three goals, could have had five, he was absolutely exceptional.

"This boy is a great mover, he's flexible, his touch is good and when it's played up to him, he's strong," he added. "He could have been playing a long time ago but you have to respect the other boys [Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths] and how they've performed."
