Celtic supporters continue to be excited by the progress of Armstrong Oko-Flex after he again impressed for the Reserves side this week.
Neil Lennon was in attendance at Cappielow to watch the Hoops second string beat Hearts 3-2 in league action, moving to the top of the table with a game in hand.
Oko-Flex provided an assist for the second goal, whipping in a delightful free-kick for defender Marvin Compper to glance home.
Looking creative and exciting throughout the match, many feel is becoming closer and closer to a first-team nod and expect him to feature for Neil Lennon’s side before the end of the season.
Obviously throwing in a 17-year-old to the team while we are chasing the title doesn’t make much sense, but perhaps if we can get over the line early then he could end up making his senior debut before the summer.
Lennon personally attending matches gives him a much greater chance of that.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his potential impact…
Having watched the Celtic reserves in recent games I would say that Armstrong Oko-Flex is a real talent as is Karamoko. If we used the same rules as the NFL I would bring the wee guy on for every dead ball until he is ready to play full time. ????

Surely oko-flex should be getting some game time now ?
He’s been playing good for the reserves

Okoflex mustn’t be far away from a first team debut.

We’ll see him before the season ends. Looks like some prospect!

Him and Dembele should get a few games when the league is wrapped up

The thought of Oko-Flex and Dembele running riot makes me happy
