Breaking; Great Celtic Forward break Silence for Life Threat from Rangers fans;

The French striker has broken silence on death threats he claims he received from Rangers fans while he was at Celtic.

Former Celtic star Moussa Dembele claims he was sent death threats from Rangers fans before Old Firm derbies.

The former Hoops hitman enjoyed a successful spell in Glasgow under Brendan Rodgers, scoring a hat-trick against their bitter rivals in his debut in the famous derby. Dembele would go on to score at Ibrox and win back-to-back Trebles during a storied stint at Celtic before making a big-money move to Lyon in his homeland. Now Dembele turns out for former Rangers boss Steven Gerrard at Al-Ettifaq and admits his departure from the Rhone club was somewhat acrimonious.

In a tell-all interview after sealing his move to Saudi Arabia, the 27-year-old has also broken his silence on the death threats he claimed he received when playing for the Hoops. He told Foot Mercato: “In football as in life, when you feel appreciated and supported you are better. Hostility does not scare me when it comes from the adversary.

“But it’s a different matter when the animosity comes from your own followers and turns into hatred. My final year in Lyon was challenging. Despite the roadblocks management had thrown in my way, I had a good start. I acknowledge that I could have and should have done better. However, it wasn’t the case. Regarding my services, I am clear-headed and impartial.
