Celtic striker Moussa Dembele was linked with Chelsea during the transfer window, and coincidentally the 20-year-old was seen heading to London on transfer deadline day, prompting many to believe he’d make the switch to Chelsea on transfer deadline.

However, Rodgers told the media on Wednesday that Dembele was sent to Chelsea’s training base for a scan ahead of Celtic’s clash with Aberdeen.

“There has been [interest from other clubs in Moussa Dembele] throughout the season,” Rodgers explained.

“Not just him, but a number of our players. It was incredibly ironic that the story broke and our medical team had planned a trip for him actually in Chelsea!

“It would’ve been the biggest sort of bluff ever if he were being followed. I just said to the medical team: ‘make sure he comes back on the plane if he’s that close!'”
