Jack Aitchison’s only Scottish Premiership goal for Celtic came in his debut in 2016 but he can’t stop scoring in League Two.
You can’t dine out on one goal your entire career. Just ask Ben Woodburn or Federico Macheda.
But, credit to Jack Aitchison, he is really starting to make a name for himself some three years after he redefined what it means to make a ‘dream debut’.
Two minutes and one touch into his first senior appearance, the-then 16-year-old became the youngest goal-scorer in Celtic’s history in a 7-0 thrashing of Motherwell during Ronny Deila’s final few weeks at Parkhead.
But it is only now, as we hurtle towards 2020, that Aitchison is starting to prove he is more than just a one-hit wonder.
After managing just one goal in 14 games combined during forgettable loan spells at Dumbarton and Alloa Athletic, the Scotland U19 international is finding the net on a consistent basis at Forest Green Rovers down in Gloucestershire.
In fact, Aitchison has now scored in three successive games with his latest strike, coming in a 2-1 win at promotion chasing Cheltenham Town, firing Forest Green to the top of the League Two table. It was a goal which highlighted the real ruthless edge that marked Aitchison out as a special talent from such an early age; the excellent first touch, the clever one-two, and the clinical finish dispatched into the corner.
Three years after Aitchison wrote his name into the Celtic record books, he is proving that he still has more to offer at the home of the champions.
