KARAMOKO DEMBELE has marked only his second reserve league start with an audacious winner against Hearts at Cappielow on Monday afternoon.

The young midfielder only played his first reserve match in late February after turning 16 and being eligible to play in the league.

We await the footage from CelticTV but there is a little debate over if Marvin Compper got the last touch of the ball before it went into the back of the net. The Celtic academy page is giving full credit to the bhoy wonder Dembele!


Celtic went 2-0 up in the first 15 minutes thanks to goals from Wallace Duffy and Marvin Compper (Yes, you read that correctly).

But Hearts battled back in the second half to make it 2-2. With the game almost over, up stepped 16-year old Karamoko Dembele to score from what the Celtic Academy page describes as a very tight angle to make it 3-2 to stun the Jambos.

What a day for the youngster and the Reserve team are going from strength to strength.
