There is one thing that’s always certain after a Celtic win – Christopher Jullien’s Twitter will be updated.
The Frenchman certainly loves a bit of communication with the supporters on social media post-match. Regardless of his own display, he’ll always be on giving a quick quip on the last game.
It was the same this time around after Saturday’s 3-0 win over Ross County. Karamoko Dembele made a quick cameo alongside Jullien, and the duo came together during the post-match lap of the stadium.
Jullien then took to Twitter to post the photo, giving the image a real father/son feel! Here’s a look at some of the reaction to the brilliant image:
Wee dembele looks about 8😂😂

Dembele gets another rare outing
It came as a surprise to see Karamoko on the bench. After his cameo in Cluj, it felt like that would be the last time we would catch a glimpse of him for a while. However, his inclusion was a real sign of just how much the manager rates him.
What is clear from the youngster’s cameos is that he still has plenty of development to do before he’s ready for first-team action. At only 16, however, that’s to be expected.
This image alone shows just how far Karamoko has to go before he gets to the stage needed to be ready for first-team football. It’s also too early to send him on loan too, so Celtic have done the right thing by keeping him at the club for now.
Also on the bench yesterday was young Stephen Welsh. He’s just finished a loan spell with Greenock Morton in which he made 18 appearances for them during the first half of the season (Transfermarkt). However, his inclusion was likely more to do with our lack of centre-backs than a potential first-team breakthrough.
Ewan Henderson, who also returned to Celtic from Ross County last week, didn’t make the bench. It’ll be interesting to see if there are any spaces for him in the matchday squads as the season goes on.
However, whether it be Welsh, Henderson, or anybody else from the reserves who gets an opportunity – none will be dwarfed by Jullien to the extent that young Karamoko is!
