Celtic's Moussa Dembele has been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Moussa Dembele celebrates his 2nd goal (Celtic's 4th) with Scott Sinclair during the Betfred Cup Semi-Final at Hampden Park on October 21, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Celtic fans on Twitter believe that Moussa Dembele has just said goodbye to them.

The linked-away striker took to social media on Saturday night to thank the Hoops fans for their "amazing support" during the 0-0 draw with Rangers at Parkhead.

On Christmas Day it was reported that the French hitman was set for an £18 million move to Brighton & Hove Albion, but The Independent denied that Celtic accepted a bid.

But the highly-rated former Paris Saint-Germain product did little to convince fans that his short-term future is in Glasgow with his reaction to being substituted against Rangers.

Dembele, who joined Celtic from Fulham 18 months ago, slowly walked off the field after being replaced on the hour mark, with his sluggish body language perhaps indicating that it could be his last game for Brendan Rodgers's side, who don't play again for three weeks.

Nevertheless, the 21-year-old scored 30 goals in all competitions during an outstanding first season with the Bhoys last term, and fans of the Scottish giants have shown their appreciation if it is goodbye.
