Striker Moussa Dembele has identified his hat-trick against Rangers back in September as the turning point in his Celtic career.

"It was a big moment in my Celtic career, my first hat-trick as a professional footballer and my first league goals for Celtic," Dembele told BBC Scotland. "It was a good day to remember, but it's gone now and we have another [Old Firm] game on Sunday.
