Karamoko Dembele was the latest Celtic player to take part in one of the club’s Q+A sessions on Instagram.

The media team have been in Wales for the last week getting the daily thoughts of various players including Albian Ajeti and Owen Moffat.

Today it was the turn of Dembele after his goal against Charlton Athletic at the weekend.

The teenager is primed to get more opportunities at the Bhoys, so it seems like as good a time as any to get to know him a bit better.

For instance, his biggest pals in the Celtic dressing room? Dane Murray and Adam Montgomery apparently – that’s the duo he’s known longest at the club coming through the academy.

The fastest player at Celtic

Another question asked by a fan was who the quickest player in the Celtic squad is – always a bit of information supporters want to know for some reason.

The answer surprised me a bit. Karamoko said the stats show that Kristoffer Ajer is the quickest in the squad. Now, I’ve never thought Ajer to be a slow coach. But I don’t really think of the big defender as the speed merchant in the team. Just goes to show looks can be deceiving.

As for his ambitions for the season? Dembele said: “Have fun, score and create goals and win a trophy.”

There you have it. He seems determined to have a big season at the Bhoys.
