Moussa Dembele aims dig at Rangers after Atletico Madrid win title
Ex-Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has taken a break from Atletico Madrid’s title celebrations to aim a weird swipe at Rangers.
Atletico clinched the La Liga title on the final day of the season in Spain on Saturday with Dembele, 24, playing a huge role in that success by earning zero starts and five appearances as a substitute.
Despite Dembele’s massive achievement in Madrid, it clearly wasn’t enough for him to simply post a tweet to revel in that success. No, he had to bizarrely bring Rangers into the equation.
Rangers won their 55th Scottish league title this season without suffering a single defeat yet Dembele has claimed that his old side Celtic are the “real” invincibles.
“Thanks for the congrats message Celtic fans. I see you,” said Dembele on his personal Twitter account on Sunday morning.
“I’m glad to see you’re happy for me. You are truly grateful and so I am to you. Remember my success is also yours so… WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS.”
Dembele then added the hashtag saying, “RealInviciblesAreUs”.
Thanks for the congrats msg @CelticFC fans. I see you 👀😊. I’m glad to see you’re happy for me. You are truly grateful & so I am to you. Remember my success is also yours so… WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS😃🥇❤️🤍🍀#RealInviciblesAreUs

Celtic won the domestic treble without losing to a fellow Scottish side in 2016/17.
As much as we don’t like to admit it, Brendan Rodgers’ side is one of the best in recent history in Scottish football.
And yes, they did go unbeaten in domestic football that season.
However, if they’re “real” invincibles like Dembele claims, why did they lose to Lincoln Red Imps in the Champions League? What about their defeat to Hapoel Be’er Sheva?
That 7-0 defeat to Barcelona has also funnily been swept under the rug.
The thing is, Moussa, you can say that Celtic are the “real” invincibles but in all honesty, they’re not.
We don’t claim to be all-conquering – we just say it as it is and we’ve had an invincible season in the league.
No one is suggesting otherwise – that’s what they do on the other side of Glasgow.
