Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard set to miss Scottish Cup final

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is set to miss the Scottish Cup final with Motherwell on May 19 after limping out of Sunday’s 3-1 victory at Tynecastle.

Celtic held talks with PSG last week over an £8million deal to make the Odsonne’s loan move permanent this summer.

Rodgers admits that the Frenchman may have pulled a hamstring against Hearts on Sunday.

‘If it’s a hamstring it would end his season. Odsonne’s injury meant we had to take Moussa Dembele off as a precaution.’

Rodgers also confirmed that Charly Musonda has returned to Chelsea for treatment.

“We have sent him back to Chelsea to get the treatment,” said Rodgers.I would very much doubt (he will be back), for this season. We will have a chat with Chelsea like we do with all the loan players.He has been unfortunate. The team has been playing very well and he’s had some game time.”
