Jonathan Afolabi is delighted to get his debut goal for Dundee as the Celtic player joined the Championship club for a season long loan deal.

The Irish striker played his part in Dundee’s win over Peterhead despite only just signing for the club.

The Dublin born striker had previous experience with Dunfermline last season before Covid hit the leagues.

Neil Lennon has instructed his staff to keep a close eye on the 20 year old’s progress with Dundee as the striker is regarded very highly despite not yet making his debut for the Scottish Champions.

The striker said:

“Very good to get it over the line finally and to get some first team action this season so I’m looking forward to it,” Afolabi told Dee TV after the game.

“There was a bit of delay but I’m delighted to get it over the line now.

“It was nice to get the goal, delighted with myself and delighted with the team and the way we played. There are obviously very high standards here so we have to keep it up.

“It’s been good, I’ve only trained once but it was a decent standard, there are some quality lads here.

“There are a lot of fixtures coming up so I think we will be ready for every single one.”
