'Does my head in' - Celtic fans react as Dembele posts cryptic contract tweet
By Danny Wright
Moussa Dembele has tweeted a cryptic message alongside a picture of himself signing what appears to be a contract on Twitter – and Celtic fans don’t know what to make of it.
The 21-year-old striker has been widely linked with a number of top teams across Europe this summer, leading to suggestions that he could be on his way out of Parkhead after just one year.
Dembele simply posted “they wanted me” on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday, alongside hashtags which say that an announcement is on the way.

Some fans believe that the former-Fulham forward is simply signing a new deal with sports brand Adidas as in the background there is an old shirt of the France national kit which was manufactured by them.
However many Celtic supporters have reacted in different ways to the news, with one saying that it ‘does their head’ in when announcements like this are made.

Dembele has missed the start of the domestic season through injury, and may struggle to find his way back into Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans due to the incredible form that Leigh Griffiths has found himself in.
The France Under-21 international has made 51 appearances for Celtic, scoring an incredible 32 goals and adding nine assists, helping them to win the Scottish domestic treble last season without a single defeat.
