Turns out Mbappe can do it on a cold Tuesday night at Celtic Park

He is the first player to score a Champions League goal for two different clubs as a teenager, having netted for Monaco last season.

That piece of history can find a nice little place on his mantelpiece next to the ‘most expensive teenager on the planet’ award he’s currently holding.

The 18-year-old has now scored seven Champions League goals as a teenager, taking him level with a striking legend.

How many goals are you going to score per game, Kylian?

Can you name the player he’s currently tied with?

Yep, it’s only bloody Kluivert.

At the age of 18 the Dutchman scored the winning goal in the 1995 Champions League final for Ajax, becoming the youngest player to do so.
