JEREMIE FRIMPONG couldn’t prevent himself from repeating his new catchphrase after Celtic’s historic 1-0 Betfred League Cup Final success at hampden yesterday.
The Dutch right-back was red-carded by referee Willie Collum only three minutes after Christopher Jullien scored the only goal of the encounter against Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side.
Frimpong, who celebrates his 19th birthday tomorrow, said several times: “Oh my days!”
The youngster picked up his first piece of silverware in only his EIGHTH first-team game and yelled the saying continuously in a selfie video on his official Instagram account as he celebrated the club’s unprecedented tenth successive domestic honour and their fourth League Cup on the spin.
Frimpong was banished when he challenged Alfredo Morelos in the box that brought the Govan outfit a penalty-kick that was brilliantly saved by Man-of-the-Match Fraser Forster as he dived to his right to beat away the Colombian’s effort.
The Ibrox frontman has failed to score against the Parkhead men in 11 games and was denied by a series of excellent saves by the big Englishman on this occasion.
The charismatic Amsterdam-born defender took to social media to convey his delight at the team’s latest triumph.
He beamed: “OH MY DAYS! YESSSSSSSSSS!”

Frimpong, speaking to the BBC, repeated the same phrase.
He said: “Oh my days. When I was sent off like that, I was inside panicking.
“Worst feeling ever. Every time Rangers got the ball I was just panicking. But then it felt like time was going so slow.
“The team held it through and obviously I was buzzing, man, buzzing.”
The youngster also took to Twitter by saying: “Oh my days! ”
