Brendan Rodgers insists Moussa Dembele was happy to come back to Glasgow on Deadline Day despite Chelsea being interested in the striker, and joked he told his physio to “stay tight to him” as they flew to London for a scan.
Rodgers told STV: “We had to make sure the physio didn’t lose sight of him down there.
“Ironically the hospital he was in was in Chelsea, believe it or not. So I said to Tim (Williamson), be like Franco Baresi and just stay tight to him.
“But he was happy to come back. He is loving it here. He got some fluid out of his knee, he has had a good reaction to it, so we will see how he is for the weekend.
