Will Karamoko Dembele get a senior Celtic debut this season?


Will Karamoko Dembele get a senior Celtic debut this season?

Celtic wonderkid Karamoko Dembele celebrated his birthday on Friday and is now available to make his first-team debut.

The 16-year-old is a highly-rated talent in the Bhoys academy and is now old enough to make a senior bow.

He signed his first processional contract with the Scottish giants back in December that runs at least until 2021 and is an exciting prospect in the youth ranks.

But will senior manager Brendan Rodgers be tempted to unleash him for the first time at senior level before the end of the season?


Dembele is an attacker that has been tipped for a huge future for a long time and has been with Celtic since 2013.

The right-winger is renowned for being a trickster that has incredible technical ability and is also a goal threat.

He is a left-footed dazzler that Celtic fans would surely love to see sooner rather than later and Rodgers should have him on his radar.

Dembele has of course only just turned 16 and the step up from youth level to the first team is significant.

But Celtic boss Rodgers has never been scared to install faith in young players and if they are good enough then he’s likely to consider them.

It would be quite remarkable if he picks up his debut this season, but if they have silverware wrapped up before the end of the campaign then why not.
