BiogRated as a superkid (as seems to increasingly be the case for just about any youngster who makes the bench of a first team seniors side), Dylan was "captured" from the Huns juniors having moved originally from Celtic juniors to the Huns but we've got him back. He has a lot to live up to and a lot to make up for.
Dylan was given his first run-out off the bench at the 90th minute in a 2-1 away win v Motherwell. Game was already won by then, but it was a start.
Soon thereafter, he was given another chance in a match v St Mirren on 26 Nov 2011 at home. Substituted on when the score was 4-0, he took the ball in our own half just outside our own box and went on a solo run taking on all St Mirren players before scoring the goal to cap a great victory with possibly the finest debut goal in Scottish football for many a year. It was to be the talk of the Celtic support, and likely something that will have riled Rangers fans having seen them lose this talent whilst being fed by their club management about the supposed merits of the overblown John Fleck. It was later marked as the "Goal of the Season", what a way to mark your debut goal & season in the seniors!
It definitely meant a lot to him as he put it:
“I’ve been a Celtic supporter since I was born so to come here and score a goal like that means a lot to me. This week I’ve had a glimpse of what it’s like in the first-team, and what you mean to the fans, and it makes you desperate to do well and get more of that. But the most important thing is the football and as long as you keep doing well on the park you will do well off it too. I’m not really used to all the attention so it’s been a bit of a shock to me. Once you start believing you’ve made it, especially as a young boy, the football can slack off. It’s good to do well and have fans recognise that but you have to keep your feet on the ground. The hard work starts now.”
Tragedy struck when in friendly v Real Madrid in the US (in Aug 2012), McGeouch suffered a fractured jaw. It was a nasty injury putting McGeouch out of action for some time.

Celts grab Dylan back
By ANDY DEVLIN
Published: 06 Dec 2010
CELTIC have pulled off a major transfer coup — by snatching wonderkid Dylan McGeouch back off Rangers.
As SunSport revealed on Saturday the Old Firm giants were involved in a bitter scrap for the Scotland youth star's signature.
After being given the red carpet treatment by Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell at the weekend, McGeouch has opted to rejoin the Hoops.
The 17-year-old left Lennoxtown for Murray Park three years ago in a swap deal which saw Gers starlet Sean Fitzharris join Celts.
But the midfielder has opted to move back across the divide after being offered a deal worth £3,000-a-week at Parkhead.
McGeouch — who rejected the offer of a new deal at Ibrox — is out of contract in May.
The player and his father were given a guided tour of Parkhead by Lawwell on Saturday and the Celtic chief executive pulled out all the stops in the pursuit of his man.
Celtic could be forced to pay out a six-figure tribunal fee for McGeouch, with Rangers furious they've lost one of their top talents to their bitter rivals.
SunSport understands McGeouch HAS signed a deal with Celts and the club will make an official announcement within the next 48 hours.
