Celtic wonderkid Jeremie Frimpong produced yet another starring display in the 2-0 win over Motherwell.
The Bhoys stayed at the top of the league thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard and an own goal. Frimpong played the full 90 minutes and caught the eye once again.
Frimpong only joined Celtic on deadline day from Manchester City. The Holland youth international was considered one for the future rather than an immediate first-team player.
But injuries at the back presented him with a chance in late September. He made his debut against Ross County in the Scottish League Cup. And he has impressed the fans every time he has stepped onto the pitch.
The 18-year-old now has five appearances to his name with four clean sheets. He recently played in the cup semi-final against Hibernian and he followed that up with a strong performance on Sunday.
Frimpong is yet to make his Europa League debut but he is heading in the right direction. With a goal and an assist to his name, he is proving his attacking threat as much as his defensive work.
Here are some tweets about the teenager’s performance.
Frimpong playing like a young Rivaldo ?

Deserved win, tho we played in 2nd gear. Edouard was different class. Frimpong is going to be a star. Ntcham terrific 1st half. Ajer Outstanding,which was good to see,as I thought his form had shaded. Forster never had a save to make.Hayes 100% effort. Satisfactory result.
