Video: Karamoko Dembele, Mikey Johnston and Ewan Henderson All Shine in Celtic Reserves Win

Karamoko Dembele, Mikey Johnston and Ewan Henderson all shined for Celtic reserves as they beat Ross County yesterday.

The Hoops travelled to Dingwall for another second string game on Monday afternoon and named a strong team for it.

All of the above started, with Armstrong Oko-Flex and Anthony Ralston also in the starting XI.

They’ve looked outstanding in recent weeks, with regular highlights showing just how good the likes of Dembele, Oko-Flex, Kerr McInroy and Jack Aitchison have been for the reserves.

And that continued yesterday in the 3-1 win for Celtic.

Wonderkid Dembele got on the scoresheet and wowed again with his performance, while Henderson also got a goal and some minutes as he continues to challenge for a place in first team squads alongside Johnston as well.

Here are the highlights from the game:

Surely Neil Lennon will have his eye on getting a few of these young stars game time between now and the end of the season?

Celtic still have work to do to secure their eighth Scottish Premiership title in a row as they sit 11 points clear of Rangers.

Their first opportunity could come away at Hibs on Easter Sunday, but that will depend on what their Glasgow rivals do against Hearts at Tynecastle the day before.
