Ligue 1 Side End Interest In Celtic Striker Moussa Dembele

  • Steven Gerrard is targeting the lucrative Europa League group stages

The much talked about face-off between the former Reds' duo may be being bigged up by the media but Celtic boss Rodgers says he's actually looking forward to seeing Gerrard.

Dembele took to Twitter shortly before midnight to post an image containing the phrase: "A man without his word is nothing".

The Celtic manager confirmed yesterday that the club had turned down a "significant offer" for the player with Lyon reportedly the team interested in acquiring the 22-year-old. Just moments later, Dembele uploaded another cryptic message for all his fans to see.

The French striker sat out Thursday night's Europa League game with FK Suduva after a £20million offer was rejected from Lyon.

This was accompanied by his caption: 'Don't get it wrong Bhoys and Ghirls, nothing to do with people who really care about the club.




Rodgers, who signed Odsonne Edouard from Paris Saint-Germain for a club record £9 million fee in the summer, last night reiterated that he needed to bring in a replacement before Dembele can be allowed to leave.

He childishly picked up one for booting the ball away and then seconds later he must have told the referee what he thought of him - that's called dissent - so off he went for an early shower.

"It has to work for both", he said.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Thursday that Celtic had rejected a "significant offer", believed to be £18m, for the France U21 worldwide. "There's not a huge list of players that can come in and offer the qualities Moussa gives us".

"We'll see how it goes".
