Much-discussed figure lauds Celtic fans on Twitter after starring role v Hearts

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele took to social media to praise supporters as his goal scoring drought came to an end against Hearts.
The 21-year-old returned to the Hoops’ starting line-up and scored the third goal as the Bhoys moved 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
The goal was Dembele’s first in nine games, and his ninth goal of the season, and he saluted the support he received during the game.
“Great team performance tonight with Intensity, good moves and link up” he began, as quoted on his official Twitter account, before addressing the fans.
“Top support from you again Bhoys & Ghirls.”

Dembele has been the subject of much speculation surrounding his future, with Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers confirming that all the transfer talk had affected the Frenchman’s performances.
However, with the calf injury suffered by Leigh Griffiths ruling him out for a month Rodgers has turned to his top scorer from last season who responded with a goal.
The Bhoys gained a measure of revenge over Hearts in the 3-1 win, as they defeated the only team to have beaten them in the league so far this season.
The other goals on the night came from Odsonne Edouard and Dedryck Boyata, as the Bhoys cruised into a 3-0 lead at half-time, before Kyle Lafferty pulled a goal back for the Edinburgh side in the second-half.
