Speaking to the club’s official website, Celtic striker Moussa Dembele says it is a dream to be in the League Cup final.

Brendan Rodgers side travel to Hampden on Sunday to take on Aberdeen in the final of the Scottish League cup.

It is thanks to Dembele that they are there, with the Frenchman’s last gasp goal in the semi-final against Rangers sealing their place in the final.

Given his fine form he is likely to start up front in the final and says it is a dream for him to feature as his aim was to win trophies when he made the move up north.

“I came to Celtic to win trophies and to be in a final for me is like a dream. It’ll be my first final so I’ll never forget it for sure,” he told the club’s official website.

“I can’t wait for that and it’d mean a lot if we could win. Celtic should be winning trophies and it’d be something great but we have yet to win it.”

Celtic will now be hoping that Dembele can make his mark on the cup the final like he did in the semi-final.

The striker has been in superb form since arriving in the summer and currently has 16 goals in 25 games in all competitions to his name.

He has established himself as one of the key men for the Hoops and they will be keen to see him add to his goal tally to ensure they walk away with success in this competition, following a 2015 win.
