Celtic

By James Black

Moussa Demblele made a goal-scoring return to the Celtic team in their 4-0 win over Ross county at Parkhead on Saturday – and fans were understandably delighted to see their star man back.

The 21-year-old Frenchman had been out of action since July but only took 41 minutes to get his name on the scoresheet.

Tom Rogic and James Forrest also scored for the Hoops as they cruised to an emphatic win over Ross County ahead of next weekend’s Old Firm game.

Speculation over the summer linked the former Fulham striker with a big-money move away from Glasgow but Celtic have managed to retain their star man as they aim for a seventh successive title.

Hoops fans were delighted to see Dembele back with a goal and they took to Twitter were quick to let everyone know.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Dembele played an hour before being replaced by fellow countryman Odsonne Edouard to a rapturous reception.

The striker still looked a little bit off the pace at times but will only get better as he returns to full fitness after his two month layoff.

He took his goal well and and showed flashed of his undoubted quality as Celtic strolled to a win over struggling County.

With Rangers and Anderlecht up next for Brendan Rodgers’ side, getting last season’s  top goalscorer back will be a huge boost.

The Frenchman scored 32 goals in 49 appearances last season as he fired Brendan Rodgers’ side to an unbeated domestic treble and a sixth consecutive title.
