Celtic: Fans react to clip of Moussa Dembele goal

Amid the international scoring exploits of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard for the France under-21 team in recent days, with four goals in two games, another French forward who has worn the Hoops’ colours was recalled on Twitter.

Celtic fan @1888JT on Twitter posted a video of Moussa Dembele’s goal against Rangers from the 2016/17 Betfred Cup semi-finals, describing him as the “best striker we’ve had since [Henrik] Larsson“.

That goal from Dembele, a deft flick to beat goalkeeper Matt Gilks, was one of 51 that the France under-21 international scored in 94 appearances for Celtic between 2016 and 2018, having been sold to Lyon for £19.7m last year, as reported by BBC.

Dembele’s scoring return for the Hoops was one goal every 1.84 games. Edouard currently has 39 goals in 92 Celtic appearances, a return of one goal every 2.36 games.

Dembele, now 23, has gone on to score 23 goals in 49 games for Lyon (one goal every 2.13 games) and these Celtic fans on Twitter looked back on their former striker with much fondness:

Just how good do you think Dembele can become and how does he compare with Edouard? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
