Fans Rage As Sky Totally Reimagine Celtic/Dembele Transfer Story

Sky Sports have received some heavy criticism after the sports broadcaster appeared to significantly backtrack on a report regarding Celtic’s Moussa Dembele.

On Christmas morning, Sky Sports broke a massive story for Scottish football as they announced that Celtic had agreed a fee with Brighton and Hove Albion for French U21 international, Moussa Dembele.

The story was initially published on the Sky Sports website under the headline ‘Brighton have Moussa Dembele bid accepted by Celtic’. However, hours after the story went live, a BBC reporter dismissed it as ‘nonsense’ with both clubs apparently denying there was any truth to the report.

Shortly thereafter, the story was deleted and subsequently entirely reimagined on the Sky Sports website with the headline changing to ‘Celtic and Brighton hold talks over Moussa Dembele transfer’.

Although Brighton are apparently very much interested in the Celtic forward, it now appears as if the report claiming that a bid had been accepted for the 21-year-old was very premature and Sky have been receiving a significant backlash online.
