Born in Tarrafal, Celestino spent six years at Sporting Clube de Portugal (youth levels comprised), but never appeared officially for the first team. He spent his first season as a professional with C.D. Olivais e Moscavide, on loan, being relegated from the second division.
For 2007–08, in the same predicament, Celestino joined G.D. Estoril Praia but, in January 2008, still owned by Sporting, moved to another side in the Lisbon region, C.F. Estrela da Amadora. He made his official debut on the 20th, starting in a 1–0 home win against S.C. Braga for the campaign's Taça de Portugal, and played his first Primeira Liga match the following week, in a 1–1 draw at Associação Naval 1º de Maio.
Celestino suffered top flight relegation with Estrela in the following season, due to irregularities. He met the same fate with his following club, C.F. Os Belenenses, but only due to sporting factors this time.
