Moussa Dembele was left frustrated on the sidelines last night as Celtic crashed to a 5-0 defeat to Paris Saint Germain.

The 20-year-old striker has been out of action for two months with a hamstring strain and missed out on the chance to play against his fellow countrymen.

After three weeks rehabilitation at the French FA centre at Clairefontaine Dembele returned to full training at Lennoxtown last week.

With matches against Sevco and Anderlecht coming up in the next fortnight Brendan Rodgers would love to have last season’s top scorer available for selection.

It’s unlikely that the former Fulham striker would have been able to influence last night’s result but in the Champions League having every option available is a big boost.

Saturday’s match at home to Ross County and Wednesday’s League Cup tie at Dundee are the ideal fixtures to bring Dembele back into action to ensure that he is ready for a full shift against Sevco or Anderlecht.
