BHOY racer Jeremie Frimpong has again hit the ground running in France during Celtic’s preparations for the new season.

The Dutch teenage sensation played for an hour in the 1-1 draw with Nice and is eager to get involved against Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow evening and has admitted the new season cannot come quickly enough.

The pacy defender, who arrived at the Hoops from Manchester City in a deadline move on September 2 last year, revealed he was getting BORED without football during lockdown.

Frimpong is also hoping to get back on the medal trail with the Hoops after winning his first two pieces of silverware last season.

The 19-year-old wing-back picked up his first badge before he had even played 10 games for the club when he was part of the side that won the Betfred League Cup in December with their 1-0 triumph over Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox outfit.

And he followed that up with 12 appearances in the league to be awarded a Premiership gong in May.

Frimpong, speaking to the Daily Record, said: “It was great to be back as it did get a bit boring. It was a good feeling getting the medal for winning the title.

“Obviously, the situation was strange, but it was my first league winner’s medal, so it is really special. I have my Betfred League Cup one, as well, and they are on a shelf in my house. Hopefully, there are many more to come.”

The fans’ favourite added: “Last year went so well. I had belief in myself and I am surrounded by top players, so it makes it easier for me.

“I still feel I can improve on everything, my defending, my attacking, you always want to improve.”
