Armstrong Okoflex could be Celtic’s next breakthrough star after being pictured in first-team training

Armstrong Okoflex has been training with the first-team.

Celtic invited two youngsters to train with the first-team amid an injury crisis at the club, the official Twitter account has shown.

The Celtic Twitter account tweeted a picture of three Celtic players in training, with Olivier Ntcham, Armstrong Okoflex and Karamoko Dembele in the image.

Okoflex and Dembele have obviously been given their chance to show Brendan Rodgers what they can do alongside the first-team players.

 

Celtic have always been renowned for developing young talent and giving them an opportunity in the first-team.

That is no different with the current squad with James Forrest, Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor, Anthony Ralston and Mikey Johnston among the academy products getting game time.

Okoflex could be the next breakthrough starlet at Celtic if he continues to impress at youth level. The 16-year-old joined last summer from Arsenal and is highly regarded as one for the future.

Operating as a winger, the England youth international – who is also eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland – signed a three-year deal until summer 2021.

Before his contract expires, Okoflex will be eyeing a first-team breakthrough and training with the first-team suggests it is not too far away.

This season might be too soon for the teenage sensation but if he continues to impress at youth level, a first-team promotion might be around the corner.
