Celtic youngster Jack Aitchison has joined Scottish League One side Dumbarton until the January transfer window.

The club confirmed the news on Friday afternoon, which will hopefully give the 18-year-old his first sustained taste of first-team football.

You’ll remember in 2016 that at 16 years of age he became not only the youngest ever debutant in the history of the club, but also the youngest ever goalscorer.

He netted as part of a 7-0 demolition of Motherwell on the closing day of the 2016/17 season. It was also the day we lifted the league trophy and said goodbye to Ronny Deila.

Since then he’s found his opportunities in the senior side limited, making just 4 appearances in total, but has been a regular performer for the reserve squad.

Given his sudden and exciting emergence on the Celtic scene, no doubt fans will be keeping a close eye on his loan at the Sons.

We wish him all the best and hope to see him make progress.
