Celtic stars Jeremie Frimpong and Christopher Jullien shared their Celtic joy on Instagram after yesterday’s League Cup Final win over Rangers.
The dust is still settling on what was a dramatic, tense, exciting and ultimately joyous day at Hampden. Neil Lennon’s men left the Ibrox side shell-shocked with a smash and grab win of epic proportions at the national stadium.
Heroics from Fraser Forster and a winner from Jullien combined to break sink Rangers for the second time this season. Former club captain Barry Ferguson admitted he was left heartbroken by the Celtic victory.
Frimpong had a more eventful day than most. He was one of our standout performers in the first half, before finding himself sent off for a challenge on Alfredo Morelos in the second.
The teenager was ultimately bailed out by Forster on the resulting penalty and his error would not cost Celtic dear in his first-ever career cup final.
His joy after the match was easy to see via both his celebrations on his pitch and his brilliant interviews with assembled media.
The 18-year-old would also take to social media to celebrate further, letting out an epic scream via his Instagram Stories that included his catchphrase, “oh my days!”
He included the caption: “Wow what a feeling beating Rangers in the final.”
Frimpong is rapidly becoming a favourite with the Celtic supporters, not just because of his abundant skill on the pitch, but his personality off of it.
It’s fantastic to see him enjoying the early stages of his career so much. His performances bode well for his future in a Celtic Jersey.
Frimpong wasn’t the only Hoops defender to take to Instagram to share his delight. Match-winner Jullien is clearly proud of himself for not only scoring the goal that ensured the victory but also for winning the first major honour of his career so far.
The Frenchman’s decision to move to Celtic likely was made in part to win trophies and he’s already achieving that months into his Glasgow stay. He’s also become a vital member of the team.
He chose to post a four-photo sequence of his finish and celebration to the social media site, showing off his crucial contribution.
They are fantastic photos that also demonstrate what his goal meant to Odsonne Edouard and Kristoffer Ajer.
With the players getting a day off today, thanks to Neil Lennon, no doubt they’ll spend much of it reflecting on one of the highlight matches of their careers. They deserve it.
