Karamoko Dembele

 

 

Celtic FC Karamoko Dembele

Karamoko Kader Dembele made his debut for Celtic's Under-20s against Hearts on Monday night at the age of just 13.

The youngster, who is not related to first-team star Moussa Dembele, was noticeably smaller in stature than most of his teammates and opponents, but what he lacks in height, he makes up for in talent and skill.

Dembele came on for 16-year-old Jack Aitchison in the 81st minute of the match, which Celtic won 3:1.

His opportunity came about when a number of Celtic's regular U-20 players were given international call-ups.

Unsurprisingly, the teenager got a lot of Celtic fans excited with his debut, but who exactly is he? Here, we profile the youngster...

When was he born?
To make you feel old, Dembele was born in 2003. That's one year before Arsenal last won the Premier League title.

Where's he from?
The teenager was born in the Ivory Coast.

The African nation has a rich recent history of producing top quality players, with Didier Drogba, Yaya Toure and Eric Bailly all turning out for the international side.

Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure both come from the Ivory Coast

What position does he play?
His favoured position is in central attacking midfield or in a centre forward role
, where he can influence play with his trickery and vision.
