Celtic talent Jack Aitchison had another debut to remember this afternoon.

Back in 2016, Aitchison, who was 16 at the time, became the Hoops' youngest-ever goalscorer when he found the net on his bow.

And the young Celtic striker has scored on another debut after proving the match winner for Forest Green today.

The 19-year-old joined the League Two side earlier this week after it was clear that he wouldn't be getting senior minutes under Bhoys boss Neil Lennon this season.

 

But Aitchison has enjoyed a fast-and-furious start to life out on loan, scoring a 78th-minute winner in a 1-0 victory at Cambridge United for Mark Cooper's side.

He only came on with 25 minutes to go, but Cooper said that the teenager was 'absolutely out of this world'.

He told Stroud News: "We thank our keeper for saving the penalty and little Jack Atchinson for being absolutely out of the world when he came on.

"He looked really sharp, got his timing right and won us the game."

Even if he rips it up in League Two, there's a long way to go before he's ready for Celtic, but this is a fine, fine start.
