MOUSSA DEMBELE has expressed his condolences to the family and friends of Harry Hood after the former Celtic player passed away.

Harry was a mainstay in the Celtic squad between 1969 to 1976 amassing 123 goals for the club in his time at Parkhead.

He is most certainly a Celtic legend and it’s another sad day for the club we have lost such a gentleman. Harry was a businessman and done great things for charity in his later years.

Moussa Dembele met Harry when the Frenchman was playing for the bhoys and he revealed what Harry said to him when they sat down together.

Nice words from Moussa who has come back in to the Celtic fans good graces after things transpired over the season. There was fallout when he pushed a move through to Lyon but he was adamant he was lied to by Brendan Rodgers and he warned Celtic fans about the manager. Since leaving Celtic, Moussa has never been far away supporting the club and even turned up on trophy day.

It was great to see the Lyon man take the time to send his condolences.



  1. The last time I saw HH was at the Pavilion On stage as a special Celtic guest of the Celtic show. We all stood up un-masse and cheered and applauded Hairy and sung his praises by singing #’Harry Harry, Harry Harry, Harry Harry. Harry Hood’# He was very amaised that we sung at him after all these years. He was taken back. But I adore this guy. My Father my uncle and Great uncle took me many a time as a niipper and kid to see him play with Clyde And Celtic. Harry Hood scored many a goal or two during his career. Going down to place a scarf for Harry now. He will never be forgotten. HHHH.

  2. I remember, as a wee boy,when Harry played for Clyde he was a schoolteacher and I shouted Celtic Celtic and he became the 1st person to give me 50 lines(l had to get my older sister to explain what l had to do)l had to write 50 times
    I must not catcall in the playground.
    I loved the guy as a Celtic player, quality person,RIP Harry Hood HH
