Celtic match-winner Moussa Dembele took to social media following the Hoops’s 3-0 victory over Ross County, and he was particularly pleased that the win increased the Hoops’ lead at the top of the table/

The Hoops’ victory coupled with Rangers’ draw with Motherwell saw the Bhoys increase their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table to 12 points, leaving them only three wins away from retaining the league title.

Dembele, who opened the scoring for the Hoops for his 13th goal of the season, was delighted that the Hoops took the opportunity to go even further clear at the top of the league table and thanked the fans for their support.

“Another victory today to strength our lead,” the 21-year said on his personal Twitter account.

“Thanks for your support and the ovation, appreciate the love! Enjoy your Easter week end Bhoys and Ghirls.”

The Hoops return to action on Wednesday night when they take on Dundee, and Dembele will be looking to continue his good form which has saw him score five goals in his last five games.

Football Insider verdict

The Hoops have been very consistent this season, and even though they haven’t been at their best they have all but clinched yet another league title. Dembele has also not been at his very best this season but he has improved massively in the last month, and his upturn in form his coincided with the Hoops’ best performances of the season. The Frenchman will be a key figure for the Hoops for the rest of the season, he should aim for 20 goals before the end of the season, he is currently on 13 and is more than capable of adding to that tally in the weeks ahead as the Hoops aim to clinch the domestic treble.
