DEBUT dazzler Jack Aitchison was amazed he scored with his first touch of the ball in his Celtic career.
The youngest player in a competitive game in the Hoops’ history admitted he was surprised – because he netted with his weaker foot.
Aitchison, 16 years and 71 days old, came on as a substitute for Tom Rogic in the 75th minute and slammed in the seventh goal inside 120 seconds.
Incredibly Jack was born in the year 2000 – so becoming the first Celtic goalscorer born in the 21st century. There will be many more to come!
He said: “It’s amazing – even scoring with my left foot. I NEVER score with my left.
“I was surprised at that, but the atmosphere when I scored was just phenomenal.
“It’s a great time to make my debut, but to score in the last match before we lift the trophy, I’ve dreamed for ages to do this.
“None of it has sunk in yet – it’s brilliant.”
The Scotland youth international signed a three-year extension with the champions earlier this month.
