Moussa Dembele has a message for Rangers fans after draw against Celtic
By Amir Mir
Moussa Dembele has reminded Rangers fans that Celtic are still 33 points ahead of their Old Firm rivals in the table after their 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon.
Striker Dembele started the match, but the highly-rated youngster failed to cause the opposition any problems as both teams shared the spoils on a passionate afternoon at Parkhead.
Midfielder Stuart Armstrong opened the scoring before defender Clint Hill equalised in the final minutes of the game.
The home team should have had a penalty very late into the game when goalscorer Hill fouled Hoops striker Leigh Griffiths in the penalty area.
After the match, Dembele hailed the supporters and had this message to the club’s rivals as they currently remain unbeaten for the season.

“Derby day is so special,” Dembele wrote on his personal Twitter account. “No three points today but we are still unbeaten and 33 points away from the rivals.”

Former Championship player Dembele has a very good record against the Gers since the Frenchman made a move to Scotland in the summer.
He has scored five goals against Rangers this term, including scoring a sublime hat-trick in September in the SPL in front of his own fans.
Furthermore, Dembele has been a key figure to Brendan Rodgers building a team that has not been beaten on the Scottish domestic circuit this season.
Rodgers will be hoping his star man can continue his form when the Bhoys travel to Dundee on Sunday afternoon for an SPL encounter.
