    I can't see Lennon giving him a chance.

    The only thing that we can offer him that the bigger clubs who are interested in him won't is first-team football. If he is wasting away in the reserves, he might as well do it at Paris Saint-Germain, or wherever.

    * knows about the rumours, but never got the impression he has a bad attitude. Came across well in everything I've seen of him, his social media isn't rammed full of Gucci and cars.

    For me it's just a case of too young and small in too big a season. Big risk for Lennon

    Because he’s got a lot of development left before he can make a serious impact.

    Think he needs to develop a bit more but the fact Harper who is a similar age has leap frogged him makes me concerned he does want away. No reason we can't be getting 15/20 mins in certain home matches. Think he could go out on loan but think he needs to sign a contract before that happens

    Agreed. Give him and other youngsters some mins if we are cruising a home game by a few goals. Especially with this 5 subs rule.
    I get lennon has to keep senior players happy by giving them mins but still, we want to have a look at some academy bhoys and see what they can do.

    Unfortunately our league does not offer the best environment for his kind of talent. He would get hacked down left right and centre with little protection from the referee. Having said that Frimpong seems to be getting away with it although I can see him getting the Tierney treatment as the season goes on

    True but they get away with it more in Scotland especially against Celtic

    What's the story here? Could he get some time now that we are missing Forrest and possibly Frimpong?

    Plenty of rumours, all with the same general theme.

    Leaving on a free in the summer.

    Good joke mate.

    Lennon doesn't play exciting young talent that are hungry and eager to impress and make a difference.

    Arguably, Dembele could end up leaving us having not kicked a ball, will end up a decent player at Spurs or something and will become the 2nd worse thing Lennon has done at Celtic - the 1st throwing ten in a row away.

    Lad should be getting game time just now, especially with Forrest out.

    The irony of saying this on a post about Frimpong and Forrest. 2 exciting young talents Lennon handed a debut to and moulded into first team players :56:

    I hate to be overly negative but this kid is a * dwarf. He will need skills to the level of Messi or more to be at a decent * professional level, nevermind being good for Celtic. It is quite sad because he has some talent and I will be delighted to be wrong but the sad truth is size matters, otherwise I wouldn't have given up on my dream of being a goalkeeper solely because I am 1,70. If he does go on to great things fantastic but this, with all the pressure and everything at stake, is absolutely the worst time to throw a kid at a dysfunctional side without leadership and expect him to be a Messiah.

    We should have played him more often in games with less pressure. You know, those dead rubbers when we already win by 4-0 against St Johnstone and Lennon waits until the 78th minute to substitute one of his pals for another of the same position?

    Not a good sign if he's not playing and in an expiring contract. I've seen rumours of him to Ajax & PSG

    He'd tear it up at Ajax and go for big big money in a couple seasons.
    PSG he will develop a lot in their academy, see a few cup games and get loaned out to a Nice or St Ettiene, where he will do well and get a solid move out of it.

    The lads got talent and has shown it in stages when he has came on - no one expects him to be an instant world beater or to perform at the level of consistency Forrest can be known for, but he has always shown there is something to his game that needs to be developed. He aint getting that here at all and I would not be surprised if he moved to one of these sort of teams, will do very well.

    No one is saying he is naturally going to be playing alongside Messi and Fati next season, but the lads got it in him to be worth something to a club our size. We just suck at bringing these lads on.

    Maybe, just maybe, this isn't all down to Celtic.
