Jeremie Frimpong favourite to win Celtic’s Young Player award

Dutch-born defender of Ghanaian descent Jeremie Frimpong is favourite to win Celtic’s Young Player award.

The 19-year-old has been a revelation since he joined from Manchester City.

The Ghanaian has established himself as one of the exciting prospect since he got his chance in the team.

With uncertainty surrounding the resumption of football in Scotland and elsewhere amid coronavirus crisis, it appears he is the good books of his colleagues to scoop the club's Young Player of the Year.

Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie, 25, has picked the youngster for the top individual award.

He said: “There are a few contenders for that but Jeremie does stand out.

“Mikey Johnston will be there or thereabouts but he’s had a tough time with injury.

“There are a few contenders for that but Jeremie does stand out. Mikey Johnston will be there or thereabouts but he’s had a tough time with injury. He has bags of ability and started the season well. Mikey has a big future ahead.

“But Jezza has been a great addition to the squad and has made such a big impact”, Ryan said while talking about the Young Player of the year nominees.

He added, “His turn of pace and ability to get down the wing and put crosses in is unbelievable. He is the perfect modern-day full back and he was exactly what we needed. The team was doing well but Jezza gave us that extra lift when he made his debut.

“He was our best player for two or three games in a row and looked like he’d been playing there for years. Jezza is so enthusiastic. I love him to bits?.?.?.?he’s so funny and genuine. His ‘Oh my days’ stuff after the Betfred Cup Final went viral but that’s genuinely what he’s like”.
