Lennoxtown’s Unlikeliest Double Act

Image for Lennoxtown’s Unlikeliest Double Act

The unlikely lads of Lennoxtown have been pictured together at Celtic’s pre Aberdeen training session.

At 6 foot 5 Chris Jullien has made a massive impact on Celtic this season- at around a foot less Karamoko Dembele is waiting for the chance to do likewise.

The towering defender has been a fixture in Neil Lennon’s side this season, hoovering up clean sheets and coming up with big match goals in the Europa League and in the League Cup.

Karamoko as he is now known has been restricted to a 20 minute appearance away to Cluj as Neil Lennon attempts to find a way of integrating him into the first team squad.

It’s unlikely that there will be a place for Karamoko against Aberdeen tomorrow but after the winter training trip to Dubai he could be in the squad that faces Partick Thistle in the Scottish Cup on January 18. Last season Karamoko picked up a Scottish Cup winners medal after being on the bench for the win over Hearts at Hampden.
