Ghanaian defender Frimpong has brought something to Celtic - Ex-Scotland coach Gordon Strachan

Published on: 29 October 2019

Former Scotland head coach Gordon Strachan believes Ghanaian prodigy Jeremie Frimpong has brought something to Celtic following his impressive display against Aberdeen on Sunday. 

The 18-year-old, who joined the Scottish giants in the summer  from Manchester City bagged his first goal for the club in their 4-0 thrashing of Aberdeen at the Pittdorie.

"Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. The message we have coming out of Celtic Park that he is a top kid. Desperate to learn, desperate to be a good player, desperate to be a great teammate. And I think that’s the way the guys have embraced him," Strachan told BT Sports.

"They know he’s brought something to the club: enthusiasm, pace, ability to hold onto the ball when he needs to hold on. Doesn’t dismiss it. He’ll beat you when he needs to beat you. Apart from wanting him to be six inches taller, what a player. He’s brought a new dimension to Celtic."

Frimpong has scored one goal and registered an assist in the last two games for the Scottish champions.
