Many Celtic fans have flocked to the latest tweet from Chris Sutton that recently emerged on social media.
Do you think Frimpong's injury should've been dealt with more seriously?
Sutton talked about the fact that Frimpong had collided with the advertising boards, describing it as a ‘sickening crash’. He argued how head injuries aren’t taken too seriously and urged for players to get checked properly after such injuries.
The Celtic legend’s tweet caught the attention of many Hoops fans, who began talking about Frimpong’s injury.
What did Celtic fans make of Chris Sutton’s tweet on Jeremie Frimpong?
I actually think they need to consider padding this cause at first glance that was a sore one and in all honesty could have been damaging ?

His head didnt make contact, his shoulder took the impact. But I get what youre saying

Can’t disagree Chris.
Head injuries are not always current.

Frimpong was taken off in the 30th minute of the game and had played a key role in helping the Hoops score their second goal on the night. Interestingly, the reason for his substitution was a foot injury, as he was caught while taking a shot on goal prior to the penalty kick (as per The Scotsman).
As things stand, the Hoops are sweating over the Dutchman’s fitness ahead of their Scottish Cup final against Hearts. Sutton’s tweet caught the attention of some other Celtic fans as well.
Not a good advertisement for football at all

To stop any more injuries of a similar nature, how about scrapping the digital advertising boards and having soft padded ones instead?

Replays showed it more to be his shoulder/neck that took the whack.

Some fans agree with Sutton’s point, while others feel that Frimpong had taken a knock on his shoulder rather than his head.
Frimpong has been a regular for the Bhoys this season and has made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Bhoys. He has also directly contributed to four goals so far in the campaign (as per Transfermarkt).
This suggests that he is an important player for the Hoops and having him fit for the upcoming games might prove to be a boost for Neil Lennon’s men.
