Not fit to tie Balde's boots - Celtic fans tears into new recruit after Astana display
By Coral Barry
Moussa Demeble was hauled off in the second half of Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against Astana with the Hoops chasing the game – and supporters were not impressed.
The striker struggled to get into the game and his night was pretty much summed up when he led a promising looking Celtic break in the second period only to be easily brushed off the ball by an Astana man.
Dembele protested, but it was a fair challenge and further demonstrated the youngster’s need to toughen up a wee bit if he wants to be a success with Celtic.
The former Fulham frontman’s capture was a real coup for the Hoops this summer, but after just seven games in a Celtic shirt, some fans have seen enough.

Dembele contribution just about zero.

Jury is still out on Dembele, he's struggling with confidence to get past players and get shots off…

Dembele. Basically a poor Bangura.

Still think dembele needs time, took hartson 6 games before he scored! One goal and he will start producing

Elsewhere in Twitter country there was one Hoops fan who called for a little bit of sense, especially since Leigh Griffiths grabbed a vital away goal to save a 1-1 draw.
I am seeing Celtic fans saying dembele was a waste of money and he's shit. See sometimes I think we have the worst fans I really do
