Dumbarton have signed striker Jack Aitchison on loan from Celtic.

The 18-year-old has penned a new Celtic contract before heading to the Rock until January.

Aitchison became Celtic’s youngest ever goal scorer in a competitive game in May 2016, when he netted the seventh and final goal of a 7-0 hammering of Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership, at just 16 years and 71 days old.
