Moussa Dembele sends Twitter message to Celtic fans after win against Zenit
Celtic striker Moussa Dembele saluted his team-mates and the Hoops supporters following the Bhoys’ 1-0 win over Zenit – but then he warned that the tie isn’t over yet.
An injury ravaged side took the game to Roberto Mancini’s team and the Hoops were rewarded for their dominance when Callum McGregor smashed home the only goal of the game in the 78th minute.
Dembele, who turned in his best performance in months, took to social media to express his thoughts on the performance.
“Great team performance tonight. Loving these big games & special atmosphere at home. It’s not done yet Bhoys & Ghirls,” the 21-year-old said on his personal Twitter account.

The Hoops were well-worthy of their victory in a game they dominated, restricting Zenit to only one real chance on goal.
Brendan Rodgers will have been particularly delighted with the performances from the likes of Dembele, the goalscorer McGregor and Jozo Simunovic, all of whom have struggled recently but were excellent against Zenit.
The Hoops boss will also have been pleased with the cameo performance from new arrival Charly Musonda, who lofted pass set up McGregor for the game’s only goal.
Eboue Kouassi also performed very well in a rare start this season.
The Bhoys are back in league action against St Johnstone on Sunday, before they travel to Russia for the second leg of the Zenit tie on Thursday.
