Video: Armstrong Okoflex Scores Beauty.. Vakoun Issouf Bayo Scores Too in Celtic Reserves Win

Armstrong Okoflex scored a beauty and Vakoun Issouf Bayo got his first goal in a Celtic shirt as they reserves smashed six past Dundee yesterday.

The two teams faced off at Forfar’s Station Park and there were a number of notable inclusions in the Hoops team.

Marvin Compper and Scott Allan both got same time again after featuring in previous reserves games.

And Bayo led the line again, continuing his pursuit of match sharpness following the January move from Slovenians Dunajsk√° Streda.

It was two youngsters who really caught the eye, though, with Okoflex netting a beauty of a goal, while Jack Aitchison reminded everyone what a good goalscorer he is.

You can watch the highlights here – which includes Bayo’s goal:

It can’t be long until Neil Lennon decides that Bayo is fit enough to be involved more for the Celtic first team.

And that should be welcomed by most considering are still operating without an out-and-out striker.

Oli Burke has played there recently, but it looks like Lennon sees him more as a right winger.

Odsonne Edouard is the other clear option, but he looks like he’d benefit from a more physical goalscorer beside him and that could be Bayo.

As for Okoflex, the 17-year-old wideman’s first team bow can’t be far off.
