Celtic star Odsonne Edouard has tested positive for coronavirus.

The French Football Federation has confirmed that the 22-year-old returned a positive in the latest round of testing, and will miss France U-21 matches against Liechtenstein and Slovakia.

He’ll now be required to self-isolate for a period of ten days, throwing his involvement in the Old Firm match on October 17 into doubt.

The French Football Federation said in a statement: “Odsonne Édouard will not participate in the France-Liechtenstein and France-Slovakia Espoirs matches, counting for the qualifiers for Euro 2021.

“The result of his Covid-19 test carried out by UEFA this Tuesday morning, October 6 having been positive, Odsonne Édouard  was sidelined from the group upon receipt of the results, at the end of training . He was then placed in isolation.

“All the other tests carried out on the entire delegation, staff members and players, were negative.”

Celtic say no other players have tested positive for the virus.

They added: “We can confirm that Odsonne Edouard has tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty with France U21. As it stands, no other Celtic player has returned a positive test. Our thorough testing programme will continue and we will continue to follow all protocols.”
