After less than a dozen appearances Neil Lennon has admitted that he has never seen a better kid than Jeremie Frimpong.
The defender turned 19 during the week and turned in a mature driving performance way beyond his years as Celtic beat Hibs 2-0 to regain top spot in the SPFL Premiership.
Lennon switched to a 3-5-2 formation which gave Frimpong licence to bomb forward down the right-hand side with Boli Bolingoli given a similar role on the other flank.
I’ve never seen a better kid than him. The quality of his play, the pace of his play, the end product, he even scores today. His fitness levels are incredible, I think that the fans have really taken to him.
Last Sunday at Hampden Frimpong was Celtic’s best outfield player as the hoops won the League Cup giving the new bhoy a winner’s medal before he had made 10 appearances.
On Wednesday Celtic travel east to face Hearts knowing that a win will put them five points clear for at least 48 hours before an intensive seven days period is completed by hosting Aberdeen on Saturday.
