Celtic hero Frank McAvennie reckons Moussa Dembele could run Rangers ragged in the Europa League on Thursday.

The former Parkhead striker spent a spell on loan at Atletico Madrid last season and since his return to Lyon he has netted four goals in five games.

And McAvennie believes Dembele could continue that run of form when he returns to Glasgow on Thursday for a showdown at Ibrox.

Asked if Dembele could be the difference, Macca told Football Insider: “It would be nice, wouldn’t it?

“He’s a good player in cracking form but he won’t be going to Ibrox with that in mind.

“I’m sure the fans will be giving him stick for his Celtic ties but he’s so far removed from Celtic now.

“He will enjoy it, he will remember going there and scoring goals and he wants to repeat that for his new club.

“I don’t think there will be any thought of Celtic for him there. We know how good he is. He could run that Rangers team ragged.

“I always said he could play higher than where he is and Rangers can’t give him an inch.

“He’s the danger man. It will be a good battle I’m sure.”
