OH my daze! The Jeremie Frimpong roadshow hit the east end of Glasgow yesterday as the little Dutch gem made another sparkling appearance for Celtic.
The right-back has been a revelation since he made his first-team debut in the 5-0 Betfred League Cup quarter-final win over Partick Thistle in September.
He caught the eye again with a virtuoso performance in the 2-0 triumph over Hibs that had boss Neil Lennon purring, team-mates applauding, a near-60,000 crowd spellbound and Easter Road defenders driven to distraction as he opened the scoring and put in an all-round dazzling display as the champions maintained their two-point lead at the Premiership pinnacle in their quest for nine in a row.
At 5ft 4in, there might not be a lot of the 19-year-old Amsterdam-born kid, but he knows how to grab everyone’s attention, that’s for sure.
Next up, it’s Hearts at Tynecastle on Wednesday and if Frimpong gets the nod, you just know it won’t be dull.
He enjoyed himself at the weekend and, as ever, CQN‘s ace lensmen were there to capture the action. Here is the picks of the pics.
