Mini Jakobsen on Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen

Celtic FC

Mini Jakobsen speaks highly of Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen.

Former Norway international attacker Mini Jakobsen has been singing the praises of Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen on Norwegian station TV2.

Johansen joined Scottish Premiership giants Celtic from Stromsgodset in January 2014 and has established himself as a key player in the team.

The central midfielder has proved himself to be a valuable part of Ronny Deila’s side, as they attempt to win the treble this campaign.

Jakobsen has been impressed with Johansen and has highlighted his improvement in Scotland.

“He has had a brilliant development,” the 49-year-old Norwegian station TV2. “Ever since he came to the club, he has become better and better.

“He began quietly in Celtic, and has had a fantastic development and has been an incredibly good footballer.”

Johansen’s form has been one of the main reasons why Celtic are still in the hunt for the treble in Scotland.

The Norway international is now on the first names on the Bhoys’ teamsheet, and one suspects that he is ongoing to get better.

Celtic are currently at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with 66 points from 28 matches, five points clear of second-placed Aberdeen with a game in hand.

The Bhoys will take on St. Mirren away from home in their next league game, which is on Friday. April 3.
