Moussa Dembele has been criticised at times this season by Celtic fans, particularly for his performance in the goalless Old Firm draw at Celtic Park in December.

However, his performances in recent weeks have made the critics eat their words, culminating in a goal and an assist in the 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox.

The Frenchman’s performance against the Hoops’ biggest rivals was reminiscent of his performances against the Gers last season, where he scored five goals.

The goal at Ibrox was only his first against Graeme Murty’s side this season, but his all-round play in the game was superb.

His anticipation to get onto the end of Scott Brown’s long ball and loft the ball over Wes Foderingham was a great bit of play, and his pass to Odsonne Edouard which set up his fellow Frenchman for the winning goal was a superb bit of instinctive play.

Dembele has now scored four goals in his last three games, and is showing the kind of form which saw him linked with a move to Brighton, as reported by the Guardian, in the January transfer window.

The transfer rumours will no doubt resurface in the summer, but until then if Dembele continues his recent good run of form the Hoops should be celebrating a second consecutive domestic treble in May.
