Former hitman Dembele, who played a huge part in their dominance in previous seasons under Brendan Rodgers, was in attendance in Glasgow.

 

Speaking to Sky Sports Football (19/05/2019) on the pitch when the title celebrations were taking place, Dembele stated that 'it's good to be here' as he commented on his brief return. 

On being back to see the fans & celebrate a title win: "It's good to be here," Dembele told Sky Sports Football. "I spent two of the best years of my career here. I feel blessed to come here and celebrate with the fans. It's just coming back home.

On saying a proper goodbye to the fans: "Yes, even though I haven't had time because some of them left before I come onto the pitch. I feel blessed and I will always come back for a celebration like this."

Fulham academy product Dembele left Celtic last summer as he joined Ligue 1 side Lyon in a deal worth £19.7 million, as reported by Sky Sports. 

There is no doubt that Celtic have missed his absence up front because they haven't had that player who has been putting the ball into the back of the net on a regular basis. 

Come the summer transfer window, it remains to be seen what type of business Celtic do and whether they bulk up their attacking line in order to push on again next season.
