Celtic legend John Hartson has claimed that the club allowed Moussa Dembele to leave because they had Odsonne Edouard, and that he would go for as much as him if he was sold soon.
The Bhoys have been in a good position when it comes to forwards in recent times. Although he has had his issues away from the pitch over the last season or so, they have had Leigh Griffiths as well as the two Frenchmen.
Dembele had an excellent record for Celtic, a career at Celtic Park which saw him leave for Lyon for just under £20 million after bagging 51 times in 94 appearances in all competitions for the Glasgow giants.
Hartson believes the reason the 23-year-old was allowed to leave the Bhoys is because they already had a move for Edouard lined up, and has suggested that he is as good as the man he replaced.
