There are still plenty of Celtic fans that rate Leigh Griffiths as the hoops best striker but when it comes to the Glasgow Derby is without question the main man.

At Hampden he scored his seventh goal against the Ibrox which is the same number as the tribute act have managed against the hoops in their troubled six year history.

Sevco fans may laugh at ‘Dembele dollars’ but on the park there is no disputing that their players are terrified of the young Frenchman.

Russell Martin and Young McCrorie had the task of negating the influence of Dembele but both men left Hampden with their reputations in tatters.

Neither wanted to go close to the Celtic striker in a 50-50 challenge with Dembele’s presence opening up space for Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor.

The former Fulham striker wasn’t to be denied in front of goal, when McCrorie was sent off Dembele stepped up to tuck away a Paneka style penalty.
