“Right now, Dembele is playing in front of 60,000 fans in the Champions League, he’s scoring goals and on Sunday he will be appearing in the League Cup Final at Hampden against Aberdeen.“He’s still got a lot to learn, but he is only going to get better – and there’s no better club for him right now than Celtic.
“That’s how Henrik Larsson made his name. He played in a top Celtic side in the Champions League and he achieved so much.
“Sometimes you can leave a club too early. You can go to a bigger league for bigger money and what you think is a bigger club.
“But it doesn’t always work out. So, that would be my warning to Moussa Dembele. You see some young players going for more money to a league that’s too big for them.
“I would urge him to stay at Celtic for a few years and pick up experience.
“Celtic need players like Moussa to compete in Europe and guys like him are why fans pay their season-ticket money.
“The supporters also understand that in the current climate, players need to be sold for a profit.
“But I don’t see why Celtic can’t hold on to him just now. They are financially healthy, they have good players and a good manager in Brendan Rodgers with exciting years to come.
