CELTIC have made a point of picturing Karamoko Dembele training with the Celtic first team today at Barrowfield wearing a Europa League bib ahead of the bhoys flight to Romania this afternoon.
With Celtic having already won the group, the team can relax and Neil Lennon has the freedom to play a lot of fringe stars who could do with some European experience.
Could Karamoko be in the manager’s thinking for the game on Thursday night?

Dembele has only played 45 minutes for Celtic’s first team so far but there’s no time like the present to let the young lad gain some valuable experience without the pressure of a normal Euro tie.
It remains to be seen if Lennon sees the midfielder making the breakthrough this term or if the Irishman is looking further down the line to next season before he starts to give the player a proper run.
