Celtic travel to face Paris Saint-Germain in a potentially daunting Champions League clash on Wednesday.
Chris Sutton has told BT Sport's live post-match coverage of Celtic's trip to Ross County (broadcast on 18th November 2017 from 12:00 pm) that he would still start Moussa Dembele up front for the Hoops' Champions League game with Paris Saint-Germain in midweek despite Leigh Griffiths' game-changing impact on Saturday.
The Hoops made it seven wins out of seven on their travels in the Scottish Premiership this season - but it looked for a long time like that may not be the case as Ross generally frustrated the table-toppers.
It took a moment of magic from substitute Griffiths 12 minutes from time to settle the game with the forward scoring a stunning free-kick to stake his claim to return to the starting lineup for the trip to the French capital on Wednesday ahead of Dembele.
But despite Griffiths' brilliant goal, Sutton insisted that Dembele is the right man to lead the line against the Ligue 1 giants, while the pundit also praised Brendan Rodgers for the way that he has managed the pair vying for that starting spot.
"Yes, absolutely because Celtic have to get up the pitch in Europe and he is the more physical one, the one who can hold it in," he told BT Sport's live post-match coverage of Celtic's game against Ross County (broadcast on 18th November 2017 from 12:00 pm) when asked whether he still wants Dembele to start at Parc des Princes.
"It's a lovely dilemma for Brendan to have and he seems to be keeping both of them happy enough," he added.
It is certainly going to be a daunting trip for Celtic with PSG strolling into the knockout stages of the competition after just four games with no goals conceded in a group that also includes Bayern Munich.
And given the quality of the opposition and the fact that he will know that his teammate is doing his chances of getting back into the team no harm at all with his own form, Dembele should have no problem finding the motivation to make the most of the opportunity if Rodgers thinks like Sutton and includes him in the starting lineup.
