CELTIC FANS HAVE been raving about Moussa Dembele after the striker’s superb start to life in Glasgow.

The 20-year-old French centre forward has scored 12 goals in his first 17 appearances for the Hoops since a summer move from Fulham.

He’s not the only Dembele causing a stir at the club, however.

Karamoko Dembele, who is just 13 years old, was named in the matchday squad for Celtic’s U20s as they faced Hearts in SPFL Development League tonight.

Incredibly, he was handed his debut at that level as an 81st-minute substitute in a 3-1 win for Tommy McIntyre’s side.

Dembele caught that attention back in March when he won Player of the Tournament at the St Kevin’s Boys Academy Cup in Dublin, which featured the likes of Barcelona, Deportivo La Coruna, Lyon and West Brom.
