Karamoko Dembele has been grabbing the attention as Celtic’s u-15 side made their way through to the final of the Hibernia Cup in Dublin.
The 14-year-old has been in outstanding form with Celtic beating Wolves 3-0, Sunderland 1-0, Club NI 1-1 and Legia Warsaw 4-1 with Dembele scoring three times in the process.
Dembele’s ability has got every top club in Europe watching his progress with his performances at the Hibernia Cup confirming his ability.

Scotland and England have both capped him at various levels but it seems that he is happy being part of the Celtic Academy set up despite obvious riches being available elsewhere.
Last season he became national news when as a 13-year-old he appeared as a substitute for Celtic’s Development League team but since then he has returned to under-age football.
His new found fame has resulted in him being singled out for over physical treatment from opponents but he has largely shrugged that aside.
Celtic face Ipswich in today’s final with the match kicking off at 1pm.
