Celtic fans took to Twitter to slam striker Moussa Dembele after the Frenchman missed a great chance to open the scoring against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, in a match which Celtic eventually won 2-0.
The France under-21 international was played in by Scott Sinclair but he failed to get his shot away first time and his effort was eventually saved by Freddie Woodman, who also saved Tom Rogic’s follow-up effort.
As for the game itself, Celtic came close to opening the scoring chart again in the first-half, when Olivier Ntchman’s effort came back off the post.
However, Dembele – who is now rated at €5 million according to Transfermkt – made up for his sitter in the 27th minute, when he nodded home an impressive James Forrest cross to score his 10th goal of the season for Celtic.
In a second-half of few chances, Aberdeen missed a good chance to equalise when Gary Mackay-Steven choosed to shoot rather than pass the ball to Stevie May who was in a position to score, after Kristoffer Ajer went down with a head injury – which he recovered from.
Dorus de Vries, was then forced into a save from before Mikael Lustig and Ajer managed to clear the danger. Lustig was then sent-off for a second offence with fifteen minutes to go, as Celtic had to dig in to hold on for three points.
Celtic then killed the game off in the 83rd minute, when Tierney finished off a breakaway with a brilliant finish.
Aberdeen sub Sam Cosgrove was then sent-off for an awful challenge on Scott Brown as the Dons went to pieces.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Dembele’s huge blunder in front of goal:
Another chance squandered by Dembele…
