Celtic supporters have been left impressed by teenage talent Armstrong Okoflex after his performance in the club’s first pre-season match of the summer.
The Hoops turned out against Austrian minnows SC Pinkafeld on Wednesday evening, winning handsomely 6-1 despite going behind in the match during the first half.
Having equalised through the returning Leigh Griffiths by the interval, Neil Lennon’s team went on to score five second half goals, with the majority of the players on the pitch coming from the club’s academy and reserve teams.
Celtic fans aren’t happy about Arsenal’s bid for one of their key players…
It was a great chance for Celtic fans to see young players in action live on the club’s TV channel, with players such as Okoflex, Mikey Johnston and Calvin Miller impressing most.
Okoflex, who is still just 17 years of age, signed from Arsenal last summer but has not yet made his senior debut in a competitive match. He was named on the bench for Celtic’s final league game of the season in May.
He was one of the players who netted against the Austrians, making a clever run into the box and deftly finishing over the oncoming goalkeeper.

Been saying since last year but Oko-flex is going to be a star for Celtic when he makes the break though this season.

Oko-flex is outstanding, get him as a first team regular.

With dembele coming through, oko-flex has went under the radar a wee bit. He looks like a cracking talent.
