Celtic fans on Twitter slate Moussa Dembele after Lyon move

Celtic fans on Twitter were fuming with Frenchman Moussa Dembele after he joined Ligue 1 side Lyon in a £19.7m move.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers revealed to the BBC on Thursday that the club had rejected a significant offer for Dembele, but the 22-year-old eventually got his move on deadline day.

Dembele is a former France U21 international and netted an extremely impressive 51 goals in just 94 games for the Bhoys following his move from Fulham in the summer of 2016, where he had been since coming through the youth system of current French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The money received by Celtic from Lyon represents a reasonable deal for the Parkhead club, although there was no time for Rodgers to sign a replacement this summer. He did however sign former loanee Odsonne Edouard from PSG earlier in the window.

Check out some of the best tweets from Celtic fans in reaction to Dembele’s departure below.
