Chris Sutton: This Celtic player shut a few people up again in win v Rangers
BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton has praised Hoops striker Moussa Dembele for ‘shutting a few people up’ in the Bhoys’ 3-2 Old Firm victory against Rangers at Ibrox.
Sutton, responding to a question on his personal Twitter page, named Scott Brown as his man of the match in the game and praised Dembele and fellow goalscorers Tom Rogic and Odsonne Edouard for their parts played in the win.
“Brown Man of the match…Dembele shutting a few people up again!! Rogic classy…Edouard what a goal” the former Hoops striker said.

Dembele’s goal to make it 2-2 on the stroke of half-time was the turning point in the game and was the Frenchman’s fourth goal in his last three games.
The Hoops’ victory – their fourth in a row at Ibrox, has saw them take a massive leap towards securing a seventh straight league title.
They now lead their bitter rivals by nine points with a game in hand, and will be confident of getting the league wrapped up as soon as possible.

Football Insider verdict
Sutton is correct about Dembele, who has returned to form with a vengeance in the last few matches. He now has 13 goals for the season and would be a good bet to reach 20 before the end of the season if he continues in this good vein of form. He has answered his critics who savaged him for his lacklustre performance in the last Old Firm match at Parkhead in December, and his excellent goal underlined his importance to the team. The 21-year-old will be a key figure for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they aim to win an unprecedented second consecutive domestic treble.
