Celtic fans praise Jeremie Frimpong for performance against Riga

Celtic managed a narrow victory against Latvian champions Riga FC on Thursday evening – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter picked out their youngster Jeremie Frimpong as a real standout player from the European fixture.

The Bhoys left it extremely late to beat Riga 1-0 in the Europa League third round qualifier, as Mohamed Elyounoussi finally broke down a stubborn defence with his 90th minute goal.

Despite struggling in the final third for most of the contest, Elyounoussi scored a neat first-time finish inside the box to keep the club’s European campaign alive.

The Scottish giants are hunting down a famous 10th consecutive league title this year on a domestic front, but it’s so important they go deep into a European competition too and it was nervous in the closing stages against Riga.

A selection of Celtic supporters on social media were disappointed by the overall performance from the side, but picked out Frimpong as a huge positive.

The 19-year-old full-back ended the action in the 34th minute following an injury to James Forrest and was heavily involved.

He slotted into a right wing-back role and was arguably the team’s greatest attacking threat, as he used his pace and dribbling to drive into the opposition’s half
