Celtic fans react to Karamoko Dembele contract
Celtic starlet Karamoko Dembele has signed a professional contract with the club.
This is an early Christmas present for the Hoops faithful who were over the moon with the news.
The fans have watched the youngster grow in the youth teams and has rightly won his contract.
Some took to Twitter to express their delight at the news.
Dembele signing shows faith in youth
The professional deal sees Dembele stay at the club until at least 2021.
The 15-year-old will have his suitors in that time there is no doubt.
However, the backroom staff evidently are backing the youth having played academy graduates Tony Ralston, James Forrest, Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor and Mikey Johnston recently.
Fans will be eager to see young Dembele join that list of homegrown players.
Karamoko Dembele signs for the Bhoys, how significant will this be in the near future. Let’s hope Brendan works his development magic with the Bhoy. 👍

Not sure what to think of Karamoko Dembele’s new contract. Great for Celtic that he’s staying put, but only a two-year deal? Will eventually leave Celtic in a difficult position (if Karamoko is as good as we all think he is).

Cracking news that young Karamoko Dembele has signed his first pro contract with us until 2021 he’s going to be a player that bhoy @CelticFC

The Celtic fans are certainly looking forward to seeing the latest Dembele hit his heights at Parkhead.
The new number 77 has high hopes for making the first team, but knows he needs to work hard in the reserves.
Eyebrows are raised about the shorter than expected contract length – perhaps his young age has something to do with that.
Celtic have seen former wonder kids like Islam Feruz leave too early to the detriment of their career.
Young Karamoko seems to have his head screwed on which can only be a good thing for club and player.
Fingers crossed he chooses Scotland when it comes to national selection.
