Celtic have shrugged off competition from Hibs to secure the 18-year-old’s signature, the player was set to move to Easter Road and even attended a game.
Shaun Maloney has instead signed Bodo/Glimit’s youngster Elias Melkersen.
Johnny Kenny, whose father was also a footballer scored 11 goals this season which was his first season as a professional footballer.
The striker will most likely slot into Tommy McIntyre’s B side to continue his development.
It is exciting to have a young prospect on Celtic’s books but he must be managed correctly in order to make the step up to the first team.
