Celtic are skeptical that Karamoko Dembele will stay at Parkhead beyond this season when his contract expires and may not even offer the winger a new contract on a free transfer.

This is acc the athlete, noting some Bhoys bosses are unsure whether either party will seek to stay together. Dembele has been in the Celtic books since 2013 when he joined the Hoops academy before rising through the senior ranks in 2019.

But the 19-year-old’s progress stagnates and a nightmarish half year falls out of action broken ankle last year he made just 10 appearances for the first team. Two of those have come for just 20 minutes since the youngster returned from injury in February.
