MOUSSA DEMBELE pulled on his Lyon jersey for the first time yesterday but failed to get on the scoresheet in the French sides disappointing draw against Caen.
Celtic’s record sale got the full ninety minutes for his new side but failed to convert and it took a last minute strike from Ferlan Mendy to ensure the club didn’t drop all three.
Moussa will still be getting used to his new teammates and system. The striker’s talent is obvious but it even took him a few games to settle down for Celtic.
It was in the September of his first year at Celtic where he announced himself as a star against The Rangers. Scoring a perfect hat-trick against Celtic’s Glasgow rivals.
Lyon are currently seventh in Ligue 1 – with only five points to show in their first six games.
They brought in Dembele for extra fire power and will be hoping the Frenchman gets going quickly.
Celtic sold the player for €22million in what was the largest ever fee received by any Scottish club for a transfer.
