On The Record

Celtic will certainly cash in on him, there’s no doubt about that, but I’m not in the £30 million (€34m) or £40m (€45m) brigade if you can spare me that… He might develop into a player of that value. I like him a lot, he can finish. He’s got a good physical presence and movement. But realistically he’s not worth that.”

- Ally McCoist does not rate Celtic forward Moussa Dembele as highly as some people.
