There was some ambiguity among media sources about the actual fee but this puts it all to rest with the confirmation of this letter.
Moussa Dembele pushed a move through to France on the final day of the window after going on a social media rampage.
The striker called into question the integrity of the manager and gave fans a massive headache before the derby game.
Luckily for Celtic, it did not affect their performance on Sunday and Celtic can now move forward.
It’s worth noting that this fee smashed the Virgil van Dijk fee the club received which was set just a few years ago at £12.5million.
Considering Celtic signed the striker for 500k – it has been an outstanding investment.
It’s what Celtic do with that money now which will be of the utmost importance. We are still in need of strengthening.
Celtic may have beaten The Rangers with ease but there are far more difficult challenges ahead.
