Why 2016 has been a brilliant year for Celtic fans

Dembele scores from a penalty against Astana

What a way to score your first Celtic goal!

Astana had proved to be difficult opponents over 180 minutes, as you’d expect from a side that had played in last season’s Champions League group phase.

Moussa Dembele came on as a substitute, earned a penalty then tucked it away to book a place in the play-off stage of the Champions League.

Taking that penalty required guts and nerve, Dembele joined Celtic to sample the Champions League, soon it was to be the stage that he excelled in.
