Karamoko Dembele has been voted Player-of-the-Tournament at the u-15 Hibernia Cup in Dublin hosted by St Joseph’s Boys Club.
The 14-year-old was in outstanding form as Celtic reached the final where they lost 2-0 to Ipswich Town.
Dembele scored three goals as Celtic overcame Wolves, Sunderland, Club NI and Legia Warsaw on route to the final.
Luck ran out however with Ipswich winning the final 2-0 but as the new season kicks off there will again be plenty of attention on the development of Dembele who played for Scotland and England last season.

Last season, as a 13-year-old Dembele made a ten minute substitute appearance for Celtic in the Development League that catapulted him into national headlines.
This season he is expected to play for the Celtic u-15 and u-16 sides with Kieran Tierney and Callum McGregor illustrating the path to first team football that is open to Dembele and his u-15 team-mates.
