By Harvey Byrne

Young Celtic ace Jack Aitchison shared his delight on Twitter on Thursday evening after scoring the winning goal against fierce rivals Rangers.

The 17-year-old bright striker prospect lined up against the Gers team in Thursday evening’s Under-17 Glasgow Cup final at Firhill Stadium.

The match however was not one-way traffic and the Hoops youngsters did have to battle for it with Ewan Henderson’s early goal cancelled out by a Matthew Shiels effort jus before half-time.

Aitchison won the match for his side on the 68th minute as he struck the final goal in the 2-1 victory, but the game also saw Celtic youngster Kerr McInroy receive a red card with three minutes left.

With Celtic emerging victors on Thursday it marked their fourth consecutive Glasgow Cup and Aitchison shared on his personal Twitter account after the game that he was happy with the win alongside contributing with the winning goal.

Aitchison is highly thought of in the Celtic youth ranks and he has already beacame the youngest player to feature for the first team in a competitive match after making his debut in May 2016 at 16 years and 71 days.

He also became the youngest ever player to score a competitive goal for the club in the same fixture after finding the back of the net with his first touch in the 7-0 win over Motherwell.

He has since failed to add to that goal total in a further two outings for the senior team, but fans will be hoping he goes on to become a star for the club.
