MOUSSA DEMBELE has played in five Betfred League Cup-ties – and scored in every one.
The French powerhouse kicked off his love affair with the competition when he netted two – one a penalty-kick – in Celtic’s 5-0 win over Motherwell on August 10 last year.
Dembele lashed in the killer second goal as the Hoops overcame plucky Alloa 2-0 at Parkhead on September 21.
Just over a month later, the hitman claimed the late winner against Sevco Rangers in a 1-0 victory in the semi-final at Hampden.
Dembele returned to the national stadium on November 27 and rolled in a penalty-kick past Joe Lewis as Brendan Rodgers’ men lifted the 100th trophy in their history with a 3-0 success over Aberdeen.
And the bargain £500,000 Development Fee purchase from Fulham kept the running going in this season’s semi-final against Hibs.
He came on as a 61st-minute substitute for Leigh Griffiths and tucked two behind Ross Laidlaw in the holders’ dramatic 4-2 victory.
