MOUSSA DEMBELE finally got onto the pitch today for the first time since the winter break and was given a great reception by the Celtic fans in attendance.
The Frenchman who looked less than match sharp got a good hour under his belt this afternoon in Celtic’s 1-0 win. Even though it wasn’t his best game in the Hoops he was glad to be back.
Tough but crucial win today ???. It’s good to be back at home. Thanks for your warm reception Bhoys and Ghirls I really appreciated it ☺?. @CelticFC ??

The speculation surrounding the Frenchman’s future has been the biggest talking point this January window. Brendan Rodgers admitted last week that Moussa’s head may not have been right. Since then, the Irishman has confirmed Celtic have no interest in selling the striker this window.
He will undoubtedly get more game time in the coming weeks after Leigh’s injury today. With the Zenit game coming up in three weeks, it’s likely Moussa will start.
