Moussa Dembele 'likes' Celtic goal on Twitter

Dublin , Ireland - 7 July 2018; Moussa Dembele of Glasgow Celtic celebrates after scoring his side's first goal with team mates during the friendly match between Shamrock Rovers and...

Celtic's winning goal on Thursday has been 'liked' by former striker Moussa Dembele.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers (R) and Moussa Dembele are seen during a training session at Lennoxtown Training Centre on December 29, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

He might've left Celtic in September, but it looks like Moussa Dembele remains at Parkhead in spirit.

The French striker, who sealed a £20 million move to Lyon, left Celtic under something of a cloud following a training-ground row with manager Brendan Rodgers.

Even quite a few fans of the Hoops lost a bit of fondness for the 22-year-old as a result of his acrimonious exit.

But it seems like Dembele is still a fan of the Scottish giants, based on his Twitter activity.

 

Celtic beat Leipzig 2-1 at Parkhead on Thursday for arguably their best result of the season, with Odsonne Edouard netting the winner for Rodgers's side.

The Bhoys scored directly from the kick off on 79 minutes after Leipzig equalised seconds earlier, with live footage of the goal being missed on television due to replays.

But Dembele has 'liked' a message on Twitter, which contained a video of the goal in its entirety.

It was a huge goal from Edouard and he certainly looks capable of being every inch as important for Rodgers as Dembele was.

He joined the Hoops for a club-record £9 million on a permanent basis during the summer, after impressing on loan last term, and although Dembele has gone, Edouard has only just arrived.

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.
