Video: Jack Aitchison Lives Up to the Hype With Terrific Solo Goal vs Rangers

Celtic’s Jack Aitchison was the name on every pundits lips before tonight’s Glasgow Cup final against Rangers – and it’s easy to see why after the youngster restored his side’s lead with a beautiful goal.

Big things have been expected from the 17-year-old ever since he was named in Brendan Rodgers’ squad to face Hearts earlier this month.

And while Aitchison failed to make it from the bench during Celtic’s visit to Tynecastle, he’s only improved his stellar reputation with this stunning strike against Rangers.

The move started with Aitchison holding up the ball for his teammates, something which left him on his backside as Celtic broke on their bitter cross-city rivals.

However, he showed immense determination to pick himself back up and surge forward.

And the player was rewarded for his hard work as he received the ball on the edge of the box, with a fancy piece of footwork opening the goal as he fired a shot past the goalkeeper:

It’s unclear if Rodgers plans on giving Aitchison more chances to break into the Celtic first team before the end of the season.

But he certainly hasn’t done himself any harm with this performance.
