No move for striker

No move for striker

Manager Brendan Rodgers insists striker Moussa Dembele won't be leaving Celtic during the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has regularly been linked with a move south of the border but his boss reckons he's instead set to remain at Celtic Park for the foreseeable future.

"I don't anticipate any [bids] to come in at this stage," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "It is too late in the window to lose one of our key players, so I can't envisage anyone going out."

Dembele was on target as Celtic moved fourteen points clear at the top of the table with their latest 3-1 home victory against Hearts.

"I thought we were very, very good this evening," Rodgers added. "We started the game very well with a real intensity and I thought we showed real power in our performance."

Aberdeen 0 Celtic 2

Both teams had a player sent-off as Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic accounted for third-placed Aberdeen 2-0 at Pittodrie.

Moussa Dembele headed in at the far post from James Forrest's cross to earn them an interval advantage.

But defender Mikael Lustig picked up a second yellow card and was dismissed with fourteen minutes remaining.

However, fellow full-back Kieran Tierney still added a second goal before home substitute Sam Cosgrove was sent-off for a bad late challenge
