Sky Sports pundit predicts Celtic clash against Inverness, delivers verdict on Dembele future

By Amir Mir

Andy Walker has backed Celtic to continue their winning run and beat Inverness 3-1 at the Caledonian Stadium on Wednesday night.

Sky Sports pundit Walker hailed striker Moussa Dembele and is hoping the 20-year-old stays at the club “longer than one year”.

Dembele has had a magnificent start to life in Scotland following his free transfer in the summer after leaving Championship side Fulham.

He has scored 15 goals in 25 Scottish Premiership games, including netting on six occasions during his last three matches.

Brendan Rodgers side have won 21 SPL games on the bounce and former Bhoys man Walker believes they will continue that run.

Hopefully, he will stay in Scotland longer than one year, magnificent debut season so far,” Walker told Sky Sports.

France under-21 international Dembele has played 42 games in all competitions for the SPL leaders, scoring 29 goals during those matches.

Three of those goals came during six Champions League games, two against English Premier League side Manchester City and the other against German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.

Despite the Glasgow club dominating on the domestic circuit where they are yet to be beaten, they were humiliated during their European campaign earlier on in the season.

They failed to pick up a win in a group consisting of La Liga giants Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach and Manchester City.

Furthermore, they suffered a 7-0 loss at the Nou Camp but did record a 2-2 draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
