Celtic 1/5 to win against Hamilton Academical in Friday's Scottish Premiership clash

Celtic striker Scott Sinclair

He came off (on Monday) and he had a scan on his calf.

The Northern Irishman also spoke positively about his other French striker Moussa Dembele, who has only played in the two Champions League qualifiers against Linfield this season. We think he'll be fine for Tuesday, but there's too much of a risk there.

"Yes, there is a chance (Edouard could start)".

'He hadn't played 90 minutes so he had upwards of 70 minutes and that gives him good preparation for the game on Tuesday'.

"He will be adapting to Scottish football".

"Of course everyone would love to be involved in the Paris game, but if not then he is not going to be too far away from that and then he is still going to have an impact for the remainder of the Champions League campaign, which is great news".

He said: "He went to Clairefontaine and did some great work with the medical team there".

"He's what you expect of the young French young strikers - very quick, very dynamic, he's technically very strong".

"I don't think he has ever trained at 11 o'clock in the morning in the rain and with the floodlights on". But he looked a bit cold this morning in our tactical session.

"We know we need to be strong, we need to be at it for the league games and if you are not, as you seen in the last game we drew at home to St Johnstone".

"The most important thing is we don't risk it".

"I think this season is another progression for Patrick", the former Liverpool and Swansea City boss said.

"It was disappointing. I thought Celtic were excellent in the first half, as good as I have seen them, their movement, one touch, two touch, was hard to deal with", he said.

He said: "Obviously Paddy was here for 18 months before".

"Last year we both had spells and the manager changed it".

Debutant Odsonne Edouard added a fourth to show the gulf in class between the two teams, although Accies substitute Alex Gogic, on for Dougie Imrie, headed in a late consolation.
