Celtic teenage prodigy Dembele shines in Dublin to claim Player of the Tournament

The 14-year-old winger caught the attention at the Hibernia Trophy over the weekend.

THERE’S A GOOD chance you’ve heard of Karamoko Dembele by now.

It’s nearly a year since the young Celtic winger made his debut for their U20s at the tender age of 13. Eligible to play for the Ivory Coast, England and Scotland, Dembele has also represented the Scots at U16 level.

There’s been an awful lot of hype around the talented teenager, and he produced the goods in Dublin over the weekend.

The Hoops joined the likes of hometown club St Joseph’s Boys, Leicester City, Ipswich Town, Wolves, Leeds United, Sunderland and development squads from France and Northern Ireland in the U15 Hibernia Trophy at Pearse Park in Sallynoggin.

And while Celtic were beaten 2-0 Ipswich in yesterday’s final, Dembele was named Player of the Tournament.

Here’s the brilliant goal he scored in the semi-final win over Polish outfit Legia Warsaw.
