Jeremie Frimpong astonished by scenes at Celtic Park on European nights

Published on: 07 November 2019

Dutch-born Ghanaian international, Jeremie Frimpong says he has been blown away by the scenes at the Celtic Park whenever the Scottish giants play European games at home.

The youngster joined Celtic in the summer transfer window from English Premier League champions Manchester City.

It took some time before he settled and started playing for Neil Lennon’ side. Due to that he was not registered for the Europa League group stages.

His inability to play in the competition has however not stopped him from experiencing the mind-blowing scenes at their home stadium whenever they host teams.

Opening up on what he has been privileged to witness, Jeremie Frimpong says he has been left wowed by how the stadium comes to life on European nights.

In a pre-match to Celtic’s Europa League game against Lazio today, the right-back shared, “I’m desperate for the boys to qualify for the knockout stages, so I can experience Celtic Park on a European night as a player. It would mean everything to play on a European night at Parkhead. Playing in Europe was one of my dreams, so it would be really good”.

He continued, “I had heard all about the atmosphere at Celtic Park and it’s lived up to my expectations. It’s been amazing. When it goes dark and then the lights turn green and I saw it for the first time I was like, ‘Oh wow!’.

“Then when the players come out of the huddle everyone is shouting and it’s so noisy. It’s so good.”

Having been impressive in recent weeks for Celtic, he is expected to be registered for the knockout stage if the side manages to sail through the group phase.
