Celtic fans are seething over the potential departure of Moussa Dembele.

Both Marseille and Lyon from Ligue 1 are highly interested in the 22-year-old Frenchman. 

The youngster was signed by Brendan Rodgers from Fulham over two years ago. He has scored 51 goals for the club in 94 appearances, and has shot himself to fame in Glasgow.

However, recent developments have occurred that suggest the forward could be on his way out of the club.

This comes right before a crucial double header against FK Suduva and Rangers before the end of the week.

Supporters have been furious at the board in recent times for not investing in the playing squad. However, the potential departure of Dembele has fans up in arms about the club’s transfer business.

Here’s the best of what supporters have had to say about the Dembele situation on Twitter:

Many of the Celtic faithful have simply turned to mockery of Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board. The Hoops will therefore be under extreme pressure to sign a replacement swiftly if Dembele leaves.

Subsequently, the Hoops have a massive Old Firm match at Celtic Park on Saturday. Therefore, should Dembele be sold, it would provide their arch rivals with a huge boost heading into the contest.

Rodgers would likely have to turn to Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard up top. However, it would leave the Champions limited in attacking options if they failed to bring anyone in.

It’s still difficult to see Dembele going regardless. With the pressure on the Celtic board at the moment, it would be a knife in the back to the Hoops support.

However, mass elements of the fan-base will feel this is nothing new.

Lawwell’s consistent motto of always coming out of transfer windows stronger than they went in is coming back to bite him.

Celtic have yet to replace Stuart Armstrong or Erik Sviatchenko as of yet. Speculation continues also over the future of Dedryck Boyata, with another centre-back still of primary importance.
