Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has been given a glowing endorsement by none other than Real Madrid manager and all-round football legend Zinedine Zidane.
The Hoops forward, 20, scored a hat-trick against Rangers at Celtic Park last weekend, before missing a penalty in the Nou Camp against Barcelona three days later.
Having moved to Glasgow from Fulham in the summer, Zidane admits he’s been impressed by Dembele’s performances – and even revealed he is “excited” by the youngster’s progress.
Speaking via the Sun, the former World Player of the Year said: “I do like to watch the young French players and Dembele is a player I am excited about. Now he has to prove himself in Europe – he needs to show what he’s capable of.”
Zidane’s star-studded Madrid side take on Espanyol on Sunday evening – just a few hours after Dembele and Celtic take on Inverness in the Scottish Premiership.
Who knows – perhaps the great man will have one eye on the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium from 3pm? Then again, maybe not.
