“I didn’t realise Moussa hit a Panenka penalty,” Craig Gordon, who couldn’t watch

CRAIG GORDON didn’t see Moussa Dembele scoring at Hampden on Sunday as he choose not to watch the French striker take the penalty kick he had just won.

“I didn’t realise Moussa hit a Panenka penalty,” the big goalie told The Celtic View.

“I never saw it because I don’t look. He doesn’t do to many of them in training actually. It’s a great piece of skill and it takes a bit of bottle because it can easily go wrong.

“At that stage in the game we were already dominant so if you’re going to try it, that’s the time to do it.

“Hopefully he doesn’t do too many of those.”

Moussa’s confidence and sheer showmanship made the third Celtic goal extra-special on Sunday and that wonderful smile on his face as he ran towards us was a joy to behold.

Just when you think you’ve seen everything watching Celtic, Moussa scored a Panenka penalty against to forces of darkness…
