'No Way Back' For Moussa Dembele At Celtic After Late Night Tweets

'No Way Back' For Moussa Dembele At Celtic After Late Night Tweets

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele sent two thinly veiled tweets on Thursday night, the target of which was undoubtedly Brendan Rodgers.

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.

Dembele was omitted from the Celtic squad which beat FK Suduva in a Europa League qualifier on Thursday.

"Like I said before the game, the club have had a significant offer, it has been ongoing now for a couple of days and we have taken Moussa out of it," said Rodgers.

We don't want him to go. We understand where it is at and we understand the offer is significant but it is no good for us. You know, it has to work for both.

Shortly before midnight, Dembele sent out a picture captioned: "A man, without his word, is nothing. A real man keeps his word."

It was followed by another just over two hours later reading, "A lie has many variations, the truth none." That was along with a warning to Celtic fans that they should be careful about who they call leaders at the club.

Former Celtic player Chris Sutton said on Thursday that the relationship between Dembele and Rodgers was beyond repair.
