MOUSSA DEMBELE couldn’t help himself but have a parting shot at the club who gave him a fantastic platform over the past two seasons.
The Frenchman was an absolute disgrace yesterday when he called the club and Brendan Rodgers out for not accepting a bid from Lyon.
Moussa’s social media antics was enough to see him get his wish of a move even though Celtic were left short up front because of it.
Instead of showing a scintilla of class towards the club he told French reporters that Celtic used an ‘excuse’ to try and keep him at the club.
Moussa Dembélé at his Lyon unveiling press conference: "From my side, I was certain I wanted to come to Lyon. Celtic needed a remplacement, well, at least that was the excuse that they gave… In the end, they gave in."

The audacity of Celtic for wanting to make sure they were covered before allowing him to leave.
It would have been much easier for the club to accept the initial bid and take the money but the Celtic manager knew that will leave Celtic vulnerable.
In the end, you have to imagine Rodgers felt he was already a man down with Dembele’s stinking attitude and unwillingness to accept an extra six month stay at Parkhead.
Comments like the one above make it easier for Celtic fans to move on from him.
