Jeremie Frimpong was in action for Neil Lennon’s Celtic against Ross County.

Celtic defender Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo has spoken highly of his teammate Jeremie Frimpong to The Scottish Sun.

Bolingoli-Mbombo – who joined Celtic from Rapid Vienna in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £3 million – has been impressed with 18-year-old right-back Frimpong in training.

The 24-year-old left-back was pleased to see the Dutchman play for Neil Lennon’s side in their 6-0 win against Ross County at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

Bolingoli-Mbombo told The Scottish Sun about Frimpong: “I was really impressed. He’s been showing his qualities in the last few weeks at training, so he deserved to star.

“I believe in his quality, I think everybody at the whole club believes in his quality and he showed why. He is young but he can play in this team. I am very happy for him.”

Promising talent

Frimpong is a very talented and promising young right-back who has a bright future ahead of him.

The youngster moved to Celtic only in the summer transfer window after leaving defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

The 18-year-old will get chances to play for the Hoops in competitive games from time to time this season, and he should make the most of them and make himself popular among the Celtic Park faithful.
