Celtic: Kieran Devlin drops positive Karamoko Dembele update

Celtic: Kieran Devlin drops positive Karamoko Dembele update -Celtic News

Celtic correspondent Kieran Devlin has revealed there has been a positive change in Karamoko Dembele’s work ethic.

The Lowdown: Injury-hit season

Dembele is actually out of contract at Parkhead in the summer and has missed the majority of the season through injury.

The 19-year-old featured heavily under Ange Postecoglou in pre-season but suffered a complex ankle fracture, making a long-awaited return to the matchday squad last month.

He featured from the bench twice prior to the international break, and it seems as if there has been a mentality switch for the teenager under the Hoops boss.

The Latest: Devlin’s update

Devlin shared an in-depth story on The Athletic regarding Dembele, which is available to view in full here.

He revealed from sources close to Celtic that there have previously been issues with Dembele over application in training and in games for the B team. Those same sources have now mentioned there has been an improvement in that work ethic under Postecoglou, despite his lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Verdict: Good to hear

Devlin’s update on Dembele is certainly good to hear, and who knows, Postecoglou may now be open to keeping the wide man at the club going forward.

The Hoops only have a matter of months to finalise a new deal, though, with his current contract set to expire at the end of May.

Young winger Ben Doak looks set to move to Liverpool, so that could also play a part in Celtic’s decision on Dembele before the end of the season, along with his positive attitude.
