Jack Aitchison has joined Alloa on loan until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old cut sort a move to Dumbarton earlier this season after just four matches shortly before Stevie Wright was sacked by the League One side.
Aitchison became the youngest ever first team scorer for Celtic when he netted with his first touch of the ball against Motherwell in May 2016 but has struggled to live up to the expectations that that goal created.

This season he hasn’t been involved in any first team squads with continued Reserve League football doing little to help his development.
A couple of League One and Championship sides expressed an interest in taking Aitchison on loan before he decided to join Jim Goodwin’s side who are sitting above Falkirk and Partick Thistle in The Championship.
Tomorrow Alloa are away to St Mirren in the Scottish Cup, next Saturday they return to The Championship away at Ross County.
