Neil Lennon has let loose Karamoko Dembele on Hearts today and we are applauding his tactics as Dembele looked fantastic.
The Celtic wonder kid has only just turned sixteen and Lennon couldn’t wait to showcase what everyone keeps seeing on YouTube and social media, then Karamoko came on in the second half and what a surprise it was as most Celtic fans thought the youngster might only play the last ten minutes.
But what a real treat it was as Karamoko look really sharp and his agility was phenomenal as he took on the full Heart’s defence and at times had three or four players trying to shut him down.
But Celtic fans everywhere will be hoping that the Celtic board can keep Karamoko at Celtic Park for as long as possible, many elite teams across Europe have been keeping tabs on Dembele and now as he has chosen to play for England permanently, his international teammates will most likely try and tempt him away from Celtic.
The main reason Dembele would stay is if Celtic could promise him more first team games and develop him further, and we have a very good track record of producing top talent.
