Moussa Dembele’s season for Celtic seems to go from one extreme to another as he is unable to put together a consistent run of performances.
It looked like he was back to his best last month, with a brilliantly-taken goal in the Hoops 3-2 win over Rangers, but he followed that up with a quiet display against Motherwell.
The pattern has continued after the international break, with a goal against Ross County followed up with a very poor display in the goalless draw against Dundee.
The performance against Dundee was quite insipid, as after missing a good chance at the start of the game the 21-year-old contributed nothing and was eventually replaced.
The worry for Brendan Rodgers and the Hoops fans is that he turns in a poor display in the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers, similar to his performance against them at Parkhead in December.
To that end, the Hoops boss should axe the Frenchman to the bench, and replace him with Leigh Griffiths, who will be chomping at the bit to take on Hamilton on Sunday.
Griffiths hasn’t started a game since January, and he will be out to prove a point that he is the number one striker at the club, and in turn that may cause Dembele to raise his game as a result.
It is a decision that is a gamble, but it paid off in January until Griffiths got injured and who would bet against it paying off again.
