Tom Boyd, insists the loan move proves Odsonne Edouard is worth the £10million asking price from PSG.
The Hoops hope to get a deal done soon with the French giants, which would smash their transfer record.
The former captain said: “Brendan Rodgers won’t see it as a gamble, because he knows the player and knows his quality.
“It is not big money in the realms of world football. In terms of Scottish football it is.
“It is still a big signing up here. I think at this moment there is only one club in Scotland who could afford that kind of money.
“That comes down to how well structured Celtic are, and has been for a long time.
“The money is coming in because of the success on the park so we can budget that.
“I don’t know where it goes after that because the money at other clubs is frightening. But that is what you have got to do.
“It is not a gamble going from what we have seen of Edouard  so far. Under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers he will only get better. Rodgers has improved so many players within the ranks here, and we have seen examples of that as players have developed and come on, none more so than Scott Brown.
“The rest are following, and Edouard will improve again given game time.
“He is a young lad who is developing in the same mould as Moussa Dembele, although Edouard is a slightly different player.
“But he has shown signs he can certainly compete with Dembele for that place, and it will be a great coup if Celtic  can get him.
“It’s stunning where Celtic are, and that they can do these things.
“There was talk of Tom Rogic  leaving, and to have someone of his quality staying is great.
“Callum McGregor too showed his quality in the Cup Final, and he’s on a long-term deal.
“It’s better to keep them here in terms of value, and in a few years they will be worth a lot more with the development under Rodgers.”
Boyd reckons Rodgers can make money on him a few seasons down the line.
He said: “Rodgers knows he will have the potential to sell Edouard on at a later date. Celtic have done not too bad at that, in terms of bringing players in and making them better, then selling them, mostly to the Premier League.
“There are a lot of players going on to bigger things and getting more money.”
