Get Dembélé playing, hopefully he’ll score a few goals and his price tag will go back up before he leaves.

Dembele didn’t play against Brechin and was substituted after a poor display in the Hoops’ last league match against Rangers in December.
Injuries and squad rotation have affected the French under-21 international’s form and he only has nine goals to his name so far this season.
The Bhoys will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership against Partick, they currently have an eight point lead over Aberdeen and an 11 point advantage over their Old Firm rivals Rangers.
The Hoops have won both matches against the Jags so far this season, winning 1-0 at Firhill in August and 2-0 at Celtic Park in December.
