Karamoko Dembele starts his first game at Celtic Park tonight in the final of the Glasgow Cup.

The 16-year-old is the youngest player in the Celtic side as Tommy McIntyre’s side look to lift the trophy which is competed for this season at u-20 level.

Dembele has been a regular in the Celtic Reserve League side since he turned 16 at the end of February with Neil Lennon looking to integrate him into the first team squad.

Celtic will be looking to the first team experience of Ewan Henderson and Mikey Johnston tonight with both players playing a key role in the 4-0 win at Ibrox in the 2016 final which was competed for by u-17 teams.

Captain Kerr McInroy misses out through injury tonight, on Friday Celtic complete their Reserve League fixtures at home to St Johnstone looking for a win and to make in roads into the three goal advantage that the Ibrox club have over them. Graeme Murty’s starlets complete their programme on Monday at home to Falkirk

CELTIC: Mullen, Duffy, Deas, Welsh, Church; Dembele, Coffey, Henderson, Oko Flex; Johnston, Aitchison
