MOUSSA DEMBELE flew to Athens with the Celtic squad yesterday before tomorrow night’s Champions League qualifier against AEK at the Olympic Stadium.
The striker’s presence sparked speculation he could be poised for a dramatic return to action against the Greeks in the return leg of the third round tie.
Brendan Rodgers’ men go into the confrontation knowing they MUST score a goal if they hope to progress to the play-off stage after last week’s 1-1 draw in Glasgow.
Dembele has not played since scoring two goals in the 3-0 win over Alashkert in the opening qualifying round on July 18.
The French ace limped off with a hamstring injury and has been sidelined ever since.
