Video: Watch Celtic’s Armstrong Oko-Flex Score Audacious Back-heel Goal For Reserves

Celtic look as though they have a real gem in their youth academy, after 16-year-old Armstrong Oko-Flex scored an audacious back-heel goal in a reserve match yesterday.

The promising teenager signed for the Hoops back in September after leaving Arsenal’s academy, and the highly-rated midfielder put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Premiership champions.

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, as Falkirk found out to their cost yesterday.

Oko-Flex was the catalyst for the Bhoys coming back from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 victory in the Reserves Cup, and he scored both goals in the process, one of which was this eye-catching back-heeled volley:

What do you think of Oko-Flex’s goal, and could he be the next youngster off the Lennoxtown conveyor belt?
