CELTIC’s developmental side have taken the lead against Huddersfield’s youngsters down south this afternoon. The game kicked off at 2pm and the bhoys lined up with a strong young side.
Karamoko took his place in the starting XI after his brief cameo for the first team at the weekend and he’s not disappointed. Inspired by his latest first-team inclusion it took just 8 minutes for the youngster to get on the score sheet.
8' – KARAMOKOOOOOO!!!

The game is still going on and we’ll give you updates throughout the afternoon.
Neil Lennon is slowly introducing Karamoko to the team and we could see him a lot more if he continues this sort of form for the developmental side.
The winger made his debut during the final game of last season when he came on against Hearts and played a full 45 minutes for Neil Lennon. Since then, an injury curtailed his progress but he’s been back up and running and looking to make the breakthrough.
