Karamoko Dembele and Christopher Jullien are certainly at opposite ends of the height spectrum and that was emphasised on Friday as Celtic Tweeted a photo of the pair in training. 

The 16-year-old made his first appearance of the season against CFR Cluj earlier this month and became the youngest ever player to represent Celtic in Europe.

Dembele was pictured in first-team training once again ahead of this weekend’s clash with Aberdeen alongside Jullien, and these fans suggested the Frenchman looked like a “proud dad” taking his son to school.

Though Dembele has had a rather significant growth spurt in the last 12 months, he is still a long way short of reaching Jullien’s towering height.

Do you think Dembele should be in the squad to face Aberdeen?



Dembele just about reaches the defender’s shoulders in the photo, though given how he is still 16, he could close that gap significantly in the future.

What is more important however is the fact that Dembele is training with the first-team once again and could well be in for another appearance in the near future.
