Moussa Dembele made his debut for Celtic in a pre-season friendly with NK Olimpija LJ and the Hoops faithful are already tipping him for greatness.

The young striker caused waves when he swapped London for Glasgow after 15 goals in the Championship last season and his obvious talents have impressed Celtic supporters.

Celtic saw off Olimpija 2-1 thanks to a Leigh Griffiths brace with Dembele getting 60 minutes under his belt and Hoops fans reacted with extreme excitement on Twitter.

One incredible optimistic Celtic fan is predicting amazing things from Griffiths and Dembele in the upcoming season.

Perhaps tweeted with a hint of sarcasm?

Celtic begin their competitive season next week with their Champions League opener against Red Lincoln Imps.

The Hoops have not managed to qualify for the competition’s group stages for the last two years and Brendan Rodgers’ first objective will be to ensure Celtic rectify that record.
