Celtic have sent an “all the best” message to Moussa Dembele as he prepares to take on England’s Under-21 side on Monday evening.

The France Under-21’s will face their English counterparts in an international friendly, which Hoops ace Dembele is expected to feature in.

The Hoops star forward has made two appearances for the young French side scoring two goals and he will be looking to inflict more damage on England.

Dembele is vastly regarded as one of Europe’s brightest talents following his switch to Celtic Park from Championship side Fulham in the summer.

He has made the step-up in quality with relative ease and has scored an impressive 16 goals in 24 encounters in all competitions for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

He will receive the full support from the Scottish contingency involved with Celtic, as they face international rivals England.

However, fans will also be hoping that their star player doesn’t get injured during the encounter as they look to secure their sixth consecutive league title.

The Scottish giants are currently 10 points clear of their nearest competitors Aberdeen at the top of the table, having played a game less.

However, they will be keen to play out a resounding title winning season with fierce rivals Rangers returning this campaign.

In other Celtic news, the Hoops have lined up a January deal for this midfielder.
