BRENDAN RODGERS has tonight confirmed that he left Dembele on the bench this afternoon amid speculation on his future.
Speaking after his side won 5-0 against Brechin – the Irishman was pretty frank why he left the Frenchman out this afternoon.
“There have been a couple of enquiries about him…it’s been clear he’s not been quite the same player.” said Rodgers.
Moussa has been subject to much interest but until the last few days, there has been no official approach from any club for the striker’s services. We’re now at the sharp end of the January window with clubs looking to make deals happen as they strengthen for the second half of the season.
Moussa is a top rated striker and should he be let go this month it will break Celtic’s transfer record that stands at £12.5million at the moment.
Celtic also stressed no formal bid had been made for the player.
