NEIL LENNON hasn’t ruled out bringing Karamoko Dembele into the fold for Sunday’s game against Hearts and handing the player his first-team debut.
The Irishman was speaking ahead of trophy day this weekend where the two clubs will have a dress rehearsal for the Scottish Cup Final on May 25th.
Neil is set to rest a number of players ahead of the cup final which leaves room for a Dembele debut if he feels the youngster is ready for it.
He also confirmed Ewan Henderson has also been training with the first team ahead of the game.
It’s the perfect opportunity to give some young lads a run out and it would be an extra treat for the Celtic faithful if they see Karamko play a part in the game.
🗣 NL: “@kdembele_10 is a possibility for Sunday. He’s training with the squad this week, as is Ewan Henderson. We’ve got boys that are carrying knocks and we don’t feel the need to risk them ahead of the cup final.”

Celtic will lift the trophy no matter what the score on the day and it will be great to see the bhoys go out and enjoy themselves.
