Celtic 13-YEAR-OLD Karamoko Kader Dembele makes Under-20 debut against Hearts

Karamoko Kader Dembele made his debut for the Celtic Under-20 side at the age of just THIRTEEN tonight.
The barely teenage namesake of senior squad striker Moussa replaced Jack Aitchison in the 81st-minute of the Development Squad's 3-1 win over Hearts.
Young Dembele was a shock inclusion in the squad at Cappielow and joined the big boys when he came on for Aitchison - himself only 16 years old.
The opportunity arose when Celtic’s Development Squad was decimated by international call-ups but as the adage goes, if you're good enough you're old enough.
And according to the club's official website "the diminutive playmaker didn’t look out of place".
 
Dembele achieved his first bout of fame when footage of his dominant performances at the St Kevin's Boys club tournament in Dublin went viral.
But even then head coach Tommy McIntyre surprised everyone with the inclusion of the tiny forward.
The Young Hoops were missing Ross Doohan, Anthony Ralston, Mark Hill, Regan Hendry, Calvin Miller and PJ Crossan, who were all been named for Scotland’s Under-19s friendly double-header with Sweden.
 
Dembele, like so many before, has been likened to a young Lionel Messi with his pace, power and close ball control when running at speed.
He has been said to have all the assets to join the long list of greats who have, as the song says, passed through Parkhead's gates.
His Messi-esque skills already have fans worried that the cash-rich clubs will try to snatch, him but Dembele's parents, from the Ivory Coast, are believed to be happy and settled in Scotland.
