13 year old Karamoko Dembele makes Celtic u20s Debut

Celtic granted 13-year-old Karamoko Dembele his footballing debut for the club's development team on Monday.

Dembele came on as a substitute for the final nine minutes of Celtic Under-20s' winning performance against Hearts.

The youngster replaced Jack Aitchison, 16 , who became Celtic's youngest ever player in the final game of last season.

After coming on as a substitute, Aitchison scored with his first touch aged only 16 years and 71 days in their 7-0 win against Motherwell in May.

However Karamoko Dembele could challenge Aitchison's record after appearing for the club's development team, seven years above his age group.

Dembele went viral with a series of tricks playing for Celtic's U13s at the St Kevin's Boys Academy Cup tournament in Dublin this summer.

Celtic's website states Dembele "didn't look out of place" after being given his debut on Monday at Greenock Morton's Cappielow ground.
