Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has reminded fans that the Scottish Champions are yet to lose a domestic fixture this season.
The 20-year-old attempted to lift the spirits of the Hoops’ fanbase after Inverness struck an 89th-minute equaliser on Sunday to earn a shock 2-2 draw.
Old Firm hero Dembele told fans that “we still remain undefeated” on his personal Twitter account, after Brendan Rodgers’ side failed to hold onto a lead twice during the 90 minutes.
So frustrated not to go home with 3 pts ?. We still remain undefeated ?. Big thanks to the fans for their top class support ?? @celticfc

A midweek drubbing from Spanish Champions Barcelona appeared to have a knock-on effect for the Scottish champions.
Alex Fisher’s late equaliser for the Caley Jags saw Rodgers’s side lose their first points of the domestic season, after previously winning four out of four, including emphatic wins over Aberdeen and Old Firm rivals Rangers.
Former Fulham striker Dembele has started life in Glasgow with aplomb, scoring seven goals in 12 league and cup appearances as well as netting a hat-trick against Mark Warburton’s Rangers.
The France under-20 international continued his run in the side as 40-goal hitman Leigh Griffiths continues to recover from a hamstring problem.
The Hoops remain at the top of the table with a game in hand and three points over second-placed Hearts, as they prepare to face Alloa on Wednesday in the Betfred Cup.
