Hartson: In-form Edouard has helped Celtic turn the corner
John Hartson believes the champions' return to form has proven a few doubters wrong.
Former Celtic striker John Hartson believes the return to form of current Parkhead hitman Odsonne Edouard has helped the Hoops turn the corner.
Brendan Rodgers' side have recovered from a stuttering start to the campaign by bagging 20 goals in their last four league matches.
French attacker Edouard, the club's record signing, has scored six of those, including a double last time out against Premiership leaders Hearts.
Hartson reckons his former club has rediscovered top gear just in time for a tough Europa League test against RB Leipzig.
He said: "They have a big game on Thursday.
"European football is a lot tougher but in recent weeks they have turned the corner.
"Edouard is starting to play really well and there's a real feel-good factor back, it's all to play for."
Hartson added: "We've only played 11 games, there are no trophies handed out at the end of October.
"But there was never a crisis, as far as I'm concerned.
"There was a little bit of disappointment for the manager, he never quite got some signings over the line in the summer.
"But that happens at every club. It's headlines, at Celtic everything is magnified.
"It's good to see Brendan has settled things down, in my opinion it was just a case of getting one or two players back fit.
"Edouard had missed a few games but now they are turning the screw and are proving a few doubters wrong already."
