Moussa Dembele has been named the Ladbrokes Premiership Player of the Month award winner for September.

The Celtic striker netted five goals in just three matches across the month, including a hat-trick against Rangers, becoming the first player to score a treble in an Old Firm league game in 50 years.

Though he didn’t find the target in Celtic’s next game, a 2-2 draw with Inverness, he did manage to get on the scoresheet twice more in the 6-1 demolition of Kilmarnock.

In what has been a memorable period for the 20-year-old, he also netted twice against Manchester City in the Champions League, and was called up to the France under-21 squad for the first time.

Celtic have already enjoyed an excellent return on their investment, having snatched the youngster from Fulham for a discount price of around £500,000 this past summer.
