'The Story Of' is a web series dedicated to small but special tales from Celtic’s illustrious history. Here, Odsonne Edouard explains last season’s Treble Treble-clincher.

WITH the global football calendar currently postponed across the board, the future of this season’s Scottish Cup campaign remains unclear. Celtic were of course through to the semi-finals of the competition for a fourth successive year, having gone all the way to defeat Hearts in last year’s tournament to clinch the unprecedented Treble Treble.

That afternoon, May 25, 2019, the Hoops came from behind to make history once more, when French hitman Odsonne Edouard found the net twice – once from the spot and once with the coolest of high-pressure finishes, 15 minutes from normal time.

“In terms of my career, scoring twice in the final game of the Treble Treble is a proud moment,” Edouard told the Celtic View ahead of this season’s domestic trail. “It’s definitely one of the best moments of my career so far, but my career in total is three years-long at this point. I want to add big moments every season I play.”

Celtic fought hard at Hampden to restore parity on the scoreboard, but Edouard remains adamant he and his peers were determined to avoid extra-time. With the final heading for an additional half-hour and the prospect of penalties, the then 21-year-old striker latched on to a Mikael Lustig through-ball, burst towards goal and coolly fired home from just inside the box.

“It was a great ball and quick-thinking from Mika to head the ball with his first touch,” Edouard continued. “From there, I knew what I wanted to do and that was to drive at the Hearts defence and either take the shot on, or look at my options on either side.

“I found the space to shoot, and as soon as the ball left my foot, I was confident it was going to hit the back of the net.

“People talk about nerves in these situations, but I don’t think you allow yourself time to think about it in the moment, you just act on instinct. It was a great goal for me and for the team."

After that, the green and white half of Hampden erupted as the Paradise faithful chanted the Frenchman’s Stone Roses-inspired ‘I Wanna Be Edouard’ anthem in unison.

Edouard added: “The Stone Roses aren’t really my style of music, I’m more into rap music, so it’s not normally the kind of song I’d listen to in my own time. But I love listening to it during the game!”
