The January transfer window is over and Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has done a terrific job in keeping Moussa Dembele and Craig Gordon from Chelsea’s clutches for the rest of the campaign. Celtic have been dominant this season and the Bhoys have built up a solid 27-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with just 14 matches remaining.
Dembele is the poster boy of French football but he could be set for a successful future at Celtic Park if Rodgers can convince him that this is the best place for his development. The 20-year-old has been simply sublime this season; netting 23 goals in 39 appearances as well as setting up four more for his teammates.
His hat-trick goal in Celtic’s recent 5-2 victory over St Johnstone was phenomenal. To be fair, the build-up play was outstanding and his peers deserve plenty of credit for their intricacy in the box. Incredibly, this was Dembele’s second hat-trick of the season; who could forget his treble in the 5-1 thrashing of Rangers at Celtic Park back in September?
