Chris Sutton believes Celtic teenager Moussa Dembele has all the tools to go right to the top.
The 19-year-old has been in sensational form following his move from Fulham in the summer, scoring 15 goals in 22 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side including a brace against Manchester City.
Speaking on his personal Twitter account ahead of the clash with German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, former Celtic striker Sutton said Dembele was a fantastic prospect.
Dembele has all the attributes.. Pace, power he can finish! Still lots to learn but what a prospect👍 https://t.co/IhUC5dbipn

The 19-year-old French wonderkid is expected to start for Brendan Rodgers’ side on Tuesday night, as they look to cling onto a glimmer of hope that sees them still mathematically able to qualify for the knockout phase.
However, they face a difficult task with an away trip in Gladbach before facing Pep Guardiola’s City as well as Spanish champions Barcelona.
A drop down into the Europa League is a more realistic prospect.
The France Under-21 international has continued to wow spectators in the green and white of the 47-time Champions, as onlookers such as Real Madrid boss and fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane continue to sing his praises.
Sutton, who played for the Hoops for six years between 2000 and 2006, scored 86 goals in 189 league and cup encounters during his time in Glasgow before becoming a pundit with BT Sport.
He also played for the likes of Blackburn, Norwich and Chelsea during an illustrious career that saw him pick up a Premier League medal, four Scottish Premiership medals and was part of the side to finish as UEFA Cup runners up in 2003.
