Obviously, given his age, you wouldn’t expect to see Oko-Flex in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI any time soon, but he seems to be doing his cause absolutely no harm at all in the reserves.
During today’s Cup match away at Falkirk, Oko-Flex was the catalyst for the Bhoys coming back from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 victory – and he scored both goals in the process, one of which was an audacious backheel.
He’s been on the radar of fans for some time now and today’s showing has got some supporters rather excited:
Oko flex might be a gem of a player in the making and also potential option for Ireland

Good to see the lad Oko Flex scoring two goals for Celtic today in the win against Falkirk. Looks to have great potential.

Do you think Oko-Flex will be the next youth player to graduate from Celtic’s academy?
