Celtic ace Henderson reveals which team-mate has impressed him in training

By Dominic Toner

Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson has taken to Twitter to reveal he has been impressed by new signing Moussa Dembele in training.

The 19-year-old French striker became the first signing of new boss Brendan Rodgers last week when he joined in a landmark deal from Fulham.

Henderson revealed to Celtic fans on his personal Twitter account that the new acquisition has looked good so far.

The striker joined from Fulham on a four-year deal and grabbed the eye of a number of clubs following his form in the Championship last season.

He scored 17 goals in all competitions in a struggling Fulham side who finished just above the relegation zone.

The youngster begun his career at Paris St-Germain as a 16-year-old before making the move to London and his move to Glasgow will now give him the opportunity to compete in Europe.

Henderson, 20, spent much of last season on-loan at Hibernian and has returned to Celtic for pre-season training.

Football Insider revealed last month that London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal were both strongly interested in the youngster.
