Celtic legend compares star attacker to Henrik Larsson

Chris Sutton has claimed that Moussa Dembele is the best signing Celtic have made since Henrik Larsson.

Larsson is widely regarded as one of the best ever players to have donned the shirt of the Bhoys and finished as top scorer in the Scottish Premiership during five of the six seasons he had spent with the club.

Sutton who played alongside Larsson during his days with Celtic said, “Dembele will prove to be the best bit of business done at Celtic Park since they got Henrik for a song.”

20 year old Dembele has been in superb form this season, having bagged 32 goals in all competitions for his club. He has been linked with many high profile clubs across Europe and will be expected to be sold, in what will be a big money transfer.

Larsson may have been able to stay at Celtic for several seasons, however in the case of Dembele a second season at the club may be difficult.
