Breaking out? Ace pictured in Celtic shirt at Parkhead


Youth prospect Armstrong Okoflex, who transferred to Celtic Park after turning down the opportunity to continue his development at Arsenal, has taken part in first-team training at Lennoxtown ahead of the club’s trip to Rosenborg, according to report by The Scottish Sun.

Still aged 16, clearly, the prospect of him playing in Brendan Rodgers’ team imminently is slim, but his participation at least is a proof that the Hoops manager highly regards the player.

Okoflex, who has been a part of the youth international set-ups for both England and the Republic of Ireland, arrived at the club earlier this month.

He primarily plays as a winger and played seven games for Arsenal’s U18s side last season before signing for Celtic. Mobilebet Welcome Bonus with voucher-code has been providing some decent odds.

Arsenal had made him an offer of a scholarship, but clearly, he has a better chance of breaking through to the first team with the Hoops, with Rodgers showing little or no reluctance in playing teenagers in big matches so far during his management.

His is a name to watch out for, and a brilliant name at that, so look out for any appearances on the bench or on the team sheet over the coming season.
