Watch: Top-Class Odsonne Edouard Finish Gives Celtic Perfect Start

Not too long after being the victim of a shocking challenge (and even worse refereeing decision), Odsonne Edouard kicked-off Celtic's Europa League tie against Salzburg in spectacular style tonight.

Beating Rosenburg 1-0 in Glasgow in the opening round of matches, Celtic travelled to Austria tonight knowing that another win could already put them in with a great chance of reaching the knockout-stage.

Finalists in the old UEFA Cup 15-years ago, the disappointment of missing out on qualification for the Champions League proper would be tempered somewhat with a good run in the Europa League.

Well, in some style this evening, French striker Odsonne Edouard demonstrated his strength, pace and composure with this wonderful opener within two minutes of the game kicking-off.

Picking up on a lumped ball forward, Edouard caught onto the loose ball and made his way toward the goal. Finishing off the chance wonderfully, Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that it kicks off a great night for Celtic.
