CELTIC’s youngest ever goalscorer, Jack Aitchison has gone out on loan until the end of the season with lower league side Alloa. Both clubs confirmed the news on Friday evening with the developmental star heading out to get first team game time.
If that was the plan, then Alloa is certainly holding up their end of the bargain because they have announced Aitchison will go straight into their Scottish up squad today for their game against Premier League side St Mirren.
Hopefully we'll see the real thing tomorrow! Welcome to Alloa!💪🐝 pic.twitter.com/0JQLq3N3Rw

Aitchison, 18, has a lot of potential and Celtic would have done their due diligence before sending the striker out. The player’s youth stats are quite impressive, especially in the UEFA youth league where he played 15 games, scoring 6 with another six assists!
In all, the player has only played 36 minutes of top-flight football with Celtic, spanning three games. Even though he hasn’t played a full half of football for the club yet, he has a goal and assists for the first team too.
