'That was for you' - Chris Sutton takes aim at criticism levelled towards Celtic star
Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has taken to social media to respond to the critics of the Hoops’ forward Moussa Dembele.
The BT Sport pundit made his feelings known after the Frenchman scored his first goal in nine games to put the Hoops 3-0 ahead against Hearts, in a game they eventually won 3-1.
“For all the Dembele doubters that one is for you. 3-0 Celtic” he exclaimed on his official Twitter account.

Sutton’s defence of the player came after Dembele made his first start for the Hoops in over a month, after being left on the bench in recent weeks as speculation has raged about the players future.
However, with Leigh Griffiths set to be out for a month with a calf injury, Rodgers turned to his top scorer from last season, who responded with his ninth goal of the season.
The win took the Hoops temporarily 14 points clear of nearest challengers Rangers and Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership league table, with the Dons set to play on Wednesday.
Aside from Dembele, the other goalscorers on the night were Odsonne Edouard and Dedryck Boyata, as the Bhoys gained revenge on the only side to have defeated them in the league so far this season.
The match also saw new loan signing from Chelsea Charly Musonda made his debut for the Bhoys as a second-half substitute.
The Hoops are next in action against Kilmarnock on Saturday.
