Some Celtic fans have been reacting to Jeremie Frimpong’s latest Twitter post after youngster’s recent injury.
Frimpong was involved in the club’s recent 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Premiership. Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths had scored, while defender Christopher Jullien also got a goal of his own in the second-half. But the game also saw Frimpong get stretchered off and sustain an injury.
Is Frimpong better than Tierney?
He sure is!
Never, Tierney is a legend
Frimpong recently posted a message on Twitter for his fans. It didn’t concern an injury update but it was about hailing the team’s performance. And the fans were left to react.
Hope you are alright wee man that was some thump you took!

Frimpong had joined the Hoops from Premier League giants Manchester City in the summer of 2019.
Since joining the club, the young right-back has climbed up the pecking order. He has made 19 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring two goals and racking up three assists on the way. 12 of his appearances have come in the Premiership. Before coming to the club, he had made three appearances for the Man City Under-23s side in Premier League 2.
While Frimpong had never made a first-team appearance for the City first-team, he had been a regular for the Under-23s side last season. He made 31 appearances in all competitions for them last season, scoring three goals and picking up three assists as well.
What do we think?
Frimpong’s injury can have an impact on Celtic, considering how he has contributed to five goals in his first season of senior level football. It shows how he is an attacking full-back and the Hoops will miss his attacking impetus.
