NEIL LENNON is not messing about today with the interim Celtic manager telling fans that young Karamoko Dembele could feature for the first team in the final five games of the season.
Speaking ahead of Celtic’s match against Kilmarnock on Saturday, the Irishman made it clear there could be a big debut planned before all is said and done in May.

Karamoko Dembele has been in the limelight since he was 13 and clips of the youngster made their way online. Since then we have been following his journey and the midfielder signed his first professional deal with the club at the back end of last year. Since turning 16 in February, Karamoko has been playing for the Celtic reserve side and acquitting himself very well.
Neil Lennon could reward the youngster with a Parkhead bow against Hearts next month once the league has been signed, sealed and delivered.
Dembele could feature for Celtic tonight in the Glasgow Cup at Hampden for the under 18s which will be live on BBC Scotland.
