Celtic have handed 13-year-old Karamoko Dembele his debut for their U20 team.
The U13s midfielder came on in the 81st minute of Celtic's 3-1 victory over Hearts in the SPFL Development League at Cappielow.
Manager Tommy McIntyre decided to introduce Dembele with nine minutes remaining in place of Jack Aitchison.
A report on the Celtic website read: "The diminutive playmaker didn't look out of place and played his part in the closing stages."
The schoolboy's skill and talent had previously been flagged up to a wider audience in a series of online video clips.
Rory Currie opened the scoring for Hearts after 35 minutes but a brace from centre-half Jamie McCart either side of a Broque Watson goal gave Celtic U20 a 3-1 win.
