Dembele left Celtic in the summer to join French outfit Lyon.
Moussa Dembele scored an excellent header to send Olympique Lyonnais into third place in Ligue 1 on Sunday, which came in the 95th minute to beat bitter rivals St. Etienne 2-1 – and Celtic fans have applauded their former striker.
The 22-year-old has not been anywhere near as prolific as he was for Scottish champions Celtic – particularly in his first year with Brendan Rodgers’ side – but he did find the back of the net on Sunday.
The France Under-21 international met a deep cross to head home past Stephane Ruffier from about 15 yards out, to the delight of Lyon’s fans as they saw of Les Verts deep into injury time.
It was Dembele’s eighth goal of the season, a tally which he has only just managed despite playing 23 times in all competitions. He has also created four more goals in the form of assists.
BBC Sport claim Celtic received a huge £19.7million for Dembele’s services in the summer, but the Hoops certainly miss him now. Odsonne Edouard is struggling for consistency, while Leigh Griffiths is taking time out from football.
Celtic fans reacted to Dembele’s superb header for Lyon, by taking to Twitter to applaud their former striker.
