Vakoun Issouf Bayo scores but Armstrong Okoflex steals the show with Celtic reserves masterclass

Armstrong Okoflex starred in front of Neil Lennon.

Celtic’s interim manager Neil Lennon went to watch the reserves in action on Tuesday as they comfortably strolled to a 6-0 win over Dundee.

It would have been a good chance for Lennon to watch Vakoun Issouf Bayo in action. And the Ivorian striker, who joined Celtic in January, staked his first-team claim with a goal and two assists.

But there would have been another player that caught Lennon’s eye with an exciting display from midfield: Armstrong Okoflex.

 

Operating on the wing, Okoflex continued his impressive form for the Bhoys by netting a goal and providing an assist either side of half-time.

This just underlined the 17-year-old’s potential as he continues his rapid ascent towards the Celtic first-team.

Okoflex joined Celtic from Arsenal last summer and has become an instant hit with the fans after impressing for the youth sides.

Celtic supporters believe they have a real talent on their hands and the England under-17 starlet, who is also eligible to represent the Republic of Ireland, has already trained with the first-team.

It cannot be too long before Okoflex is pushing for a first-team spot, especially if Lennon continues to monitor his progress by attending reserve matches.

The talented teenager’s display would have impressed Lennon and it could earn him a first-team promotion in the near future.
