TWO-GOAL Moussa Dembele claimed Celtic showed their Champions League credentials with their 3-3 draw against Manchester City under the lights in the east end of Glasgow.
Brendan Rodgers’ side went into the confrontation with the City billionaires on the back of a record-low 7-0 hammering in Barcelona earlier in the month.
Dembele said: “As a striker, you always want to score goals and I scored two and it’s good for the team and good for the club.
“When I signed for Celtic I knew this team belongs to the Champions League and nights like that, fans showed us great support and I’m happy to get the result.
“When we play offensively we can cause anyone problems and that’s what we showed and what we need to do in the next games.”
The 20-year-old French ace scored 17 goals in the Championship last season for Fulham.
Remarkably, he has already netted 12 goals for the Hoops and is underlining why the Hoops boss made him a priority signing in the summer.
Now Rodgers will have to decide if Dembele starts Saturday’s Premiership match against Dundee at Dens Park – or bring back last season’s 40-goal man Leigh Griffiths who has made two substitute performances since injuring a hamstring against Aberdeen last month.
The problem for ex-Celt Paul Hartley, the Dens boss, is that the Irishman might play both!
Meanwhile the Scottish media, after Dembele’s double last night coming shortly after his hat trick against their team, have had enough and have started their campaign to have Moussa sold as quickly as possible.
