Celtic youngster Jack Aitchison stepped up to score a winner for the club in the Glasgow Cup Final against rivals Rangers.

The 17-year-old striker fired Celtic's youth side to a 2-1 victory with a brilliant solo goal in which he left the Gers defenders trailing in his wake.

Aitchison has already scored for Celtic's first team and looks to be a surefire bet to star for the club in the future on a regular basis, the only question is how soon?

Last night's performance will not have done his prospects any harm at all, and could even win him a place on the bench in this weekend's Scottish Cup semi final for the first team.

Aitchison's continued progress is positive for Scottish football as well as Celtic, with the national team in dire need of a real top talent to lead the way and help them kick on.

The Celtic striker has a bright a chance as anyone to be the catalyst for success, and it would not be a shock to see him get first team chances before this season ends. After last night, it would be very much deserved. 

Here is a look at how Celtic fans reacted on Twitter to his performance...
