Lyon striker Moussa Dembele has told Chris Sutton during an interview for BT Sport that he is a Celtic fan now.

The French striker – who is now valued at £60 million, as reported by The Scottish Sun – has added that he follows every game of Celtic.

The 23-year-old joined the Hoops in the summer of 2016 after leaving Fulham, and after two successful years, moved to Lyon in 2018 for a transfer fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £20 million.

During his time at Celtic Park, the striker won the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup twice each.

Dembele has reflected on his spell at Celtic while speaking to former Bhoys striker Sutton, and the Frenchman is delighted to have turned out for the Hoops and has said that he has become a fan of the Glasgow giants.



Dembele told Sutton during an interview for BT Sport: “Before I came, I think for me Celtic was just a big club, but once you step in, you realise that it is more than a football club.

“It mean a lot. It made me grow as a player, as a man, made me see different things from what I had seen before.

“It was a really, really, really good experience. I wouldn’t change it for nothing. I am a fan now, I am like a fan. I follow every game.”


According to WhoScored, Dembele made 24 starts and three substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for Lyon this season, scoring 16 goals and providing two assists in the process.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the 23-year-old Frenchman made 21 starts and 12 substitute appearances in the league, scoring 15 goals and providing four assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
