Bhoys and Ghirls, My journey at Celtic has come to an end and it’s time for me to embrace a new challenge. Through my journey at Celtic I have experienced many great memories that will last with me forever. My purpose was always to bring you joy and happiness. You will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget my time at Celtic, simply because you are special people. I’m not gonna lie to you, I will miss playing against Rangers and the particular excitement that it brings, but I have other challenges ahead that I’m looking forward to. Every time I will watch Celtic I will remember that day when you were singing “🎼 I saw Dembélé on the telly he scored a hat trick against the…🎼” That September derby when we annihilated Rangers was surely the moment we fell in love. #DEMBELITION We went to Champions League together, we conquered Glasgow together, planted our flag on rival territory together, we lost a few… but won a lot. I am leaving feeling that I have achieved everything I can as a Celtic player. I feel truly blessed and proud to be in Celtic’s history book as an invincible and double treble winner. When I signed for Celtic, I said we will make history, we did! Mission completed, Veni Vidi Vici. I don’t talk much but that doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings. I sincerely love you Bhoys and Ghirls. THANK YOU to all the fans across the world and the charity foundation. THANK YOU to the people at the club; the manager and the coaching staff, my team mates and the board members. THANK YOU to the office people, security staff, cleaners and kitchen workers. THANK YOU EVERYONE in the background that the public don’t see but make this Club so special. I will keep a part of you with me and everywhere I am you’ll be there too. Best of luck to you, we’ll meet again soon Bhoys and Ghirls. Moussa aka Big Mouss aka The King of Glasgow aka Dembelition.
Will this help people move on quicker and remember his time at the club more fondly instead of fixating on how he left the club.
Whatever way you look at, the striker has left the club short until January and piled more pressure on his former teammates in the process.
Time heals all wounds and maybe the gesture of this message will win a few people back.
The message comes as Celtic get prepared to take on their Glasgow rivals at Parkhead in the Midday kickoff.
