Moussa let himself down big time over the past 24 hours with social media petulance and acting like a sulking teenager at training.
Dembele wanted to go and has done everything to make sure that his move was pushed through.
While Celtic and Brendan Rodgers wanted to keep the player until at least January it looks more likely that Frenchman has got his wish and will quadruple his wages at Lyon.
Celtic fans were accepting them at Moussa wouldn’t be around forever but his antics have left a bad taste in the mouth of many and it will be a while before fans can properly reminisce about his time at the club if he leaves this evening.
Deadline is midnight tonight.
