Video: Scoutable United thank Karamoko Dembele after Celtic youngster's pep talk
Amateur club Scoutable United have thanked Karamoko Dembele for taking the time to give their players a pep talk.
The club is an initiative set up back in 2019 to promote players from diverse backgrounds. Scoutable also work with coaches in a bid to help them get their badges.
Advertising themselves as a club that shouldn’t exist, Scoutable attempts to highlight the best unsigned talent in Scottish football. And supporting the cause was Karamoko, who took a trip to see them earlier this week as he delivered a short message:
The cause that Scoutable push is a fantastic one. Their growth since 2019 is clear evidence of that, and it provides talented young footballers from diverse backgrounds with an opportunity to keep showcasing their talents and potentially get back into the professional game.
Karamoko, of course, is a role model himself despite only being 19 years of age. With so much media attention on his career and having already made his Celtic debut, it’s no wonder there are plenty that look up to him.
Hopefully the youngsters at Scoutable United took something from his visit. It’s a class gesture for the Celtic man and a brilliant initiative.

It’s interesting to see Karamoko playing the role of motivational speaker. Celtic fans haven’t really had the chance to hear much from him in recent months. No doubt it was an exciting day for the Scoutable players.
As for Karamoko himself, he’s at an intriguing stage in his own career. Celtic will be itching for him to stay beyond the summer, but with a contract that expires come the end of the season, mystery still surrounds where he’ll end up.
In addition to that, he reportedly has the Ivory Coast itching to give him a full international debut as they look to tie him to their setup [Football Scotland].
A big period lies ahead for the Lennoxtown starlet as he looks to finally settle both his club and international futures in the coming months.
Hopefully, he commits to Parkhead and sees the opportunities that would be available to him under Ange Postecoglou. You would also hope he’s also been impressed with the Celtic manager in his debut season enough for him to commit for the long-term.
Regardless, credit to him for getting out and supporting Scoutable. A fine touch indeed.
