    Started the last 7 league games anyway? Can’t find it outwith that. Regardless, he’s been * bossing it and I would love him here.

    McDonald was probably the most succesful for us, when you take in his CL exploits. He isn’t a better player but.

    Can’t believe McDonald is getting mentions here. Not a great player and will never forgive him for his celebrations on helicopter Sunday.

    Edouard. The guy has it all.

    He will go to the very top of World Football.

    Did more on the pitch for Celtic than the one season wonder did before he left for France.

    McDonald or Hooper right now.
    Dembele was close but his second season wasn't great and then he left. Edouard could surpass them if we keep him another season after this though.

    I think Eddy, just cause he seems to use more of the pitch and is learning at a ferocious rate, still crazy he's only 21, only very good players can be as relaxed as he looks when he's playing.

    Next year it'll be Frimpong.

    Dembele was the absolute star of an invincible treble and then a 2nd one.

    Don’t know if McDonald matches that tbh.

    Hooper struggled to get a game for Norwich when he left. McDonald went to Middlesbrough.
    Dembele is impressing with Lyon and will get a bigger move soon.
    Anyone who thinks McDonald or hooper are in dembele’s league is having a laugh.

    They are very much comparable at us though.

    McDonald got the winner against a superb AC Milan team, terrorised Alex Ferguson’s Man Utd.

    Hooper was excellent in Lenny’s last 16 charge, and was instrumental in our first ever CL away win.

    Skippy and Hooper, both superb Celtic goal-scorers at all levels, are not on the level of Eddy and Moussa.

    In truth, they’re not on the level of Griff.

    I'd have Hooper over Griff. I do agree eddy and moussa are on a different level though

    Dembele most certainly was the star of anything in his 2nd season here...

    Surprised no one mentioned Sutton or Hartson are in the list they we're still here after Henrik left.

    My shouts Hartson but just not too have to choose between Eddy Dembele or JVoH

    If you gave Hooper and mcdonald dembele edouards size and physical attributes they would be streets ahead , but their experience gets them closer than it should and pound for pound gave more in relative terms imo.

    They really are, 2 strikers that lead us to the latter stages of Europe’s premier competition, 2 that haven’t.

    That’s comparable. It’s like Van Dijk was the most naturally talented player I’ve seen at us since Larsson, he was unreal. Stephen McManus done better than him in a Celtic strip.

    I disagree. Wasn’t as good as his first season but was still * excellent in an injury prone season.
