Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry believes that Moussa Dembele should leave Celtic in the January transfer window to try and test him in a better league.

The former Arsenal striker has also had a bit of a pop at Scottish football by saying that the Scottish Premiership is not a ‘big league’.

Henry gave his opinion after watching Brighton play Bournemouth on Sky Sports, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

“He can play, he can score, it might be time for him to play in a big league,” he said.

“He has all the attributes. I’m just really surprised it’s only Brighton showing interest.”

Brighton have been linked with a £20million bid for Celtic’s Dembele, with Stoke also showing an interested in the French under-21 international, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

Dembele, who signed for the Hoops in 2016 from Fulham, had a superb first season in Glasgow, scoring 32 goals as the Bhoys won their first domestic treble since 2001, and completed an unbeaten domestic league campaign for the first time since the 1890s.

He scored the first hat-trick in an Old Firm league game since 1966 and three goals in the Champions League group stages, including two against Manchester City.

This season he hasn’t been as prolific due to injury and squad rotation but Dembele has still scored nine goals, including one against PSG in the Champions League group stages.

Dembele played in the goal less draw against Rangers but was substituted after an hour’s time, and many supporters feel he may have played his last game for the Hoops as Celtic aren’t in action again until January the 20th.
