Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “'He's got 1 more league medal than Gerrard - aged 16!' - Celtic wonderkid Dembélé debut stuns fans”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Born in London to Ivorian parents, winger Dembélé has lived in Glasgow, Scotland, nearly all of his life, and joined local side Celtic's youth setup aged 10. He gained significant media attention when he made his debut for the club's U-20 team three years later, and on Sunday he was given his first team bow against Hearts. 

Coming on as a 46th minute substitute with the game level at 1-1 for Oliver Burke, himself formerly tipped as a teen sensation, Dembélé helped the Celts to a 2-1 win courtesy of a late Michael Johnston winner, wowing observers with pace, intelligence and talent that belied his years.

Celtic's win in the final game of the season was capped with Scottish Premier League title celebrations at Parkhead, and Dembélé collected his winner's medal after the match and lifted the championship trophy, later partying on the pitch with his family.

Following his electric debut, social media became awash with highlight videos from fans still stunned at the teenager's show of flair. Some audaciously suggested "he's already too good for Scottish football", while others took the chance to ridicule long-time Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.
