Dembele is pleased to have played against Celtic, and the Glasgow giants have responded to his post.


Dembele was superb during his two seasons at Celtic, and played a key role in the Glasgow giants winning the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup in both of those years.

The Frenchman has continued to develop and progress at Lyon and has proved himself to be a regular goalscorer in France as well.

According to WhoScored, the 24-year-old scored 15 goals and provided four assists in the league in 2018-19, while in 2019-20, he scored 16 goals and provided two assists in the league.
