Some Celtic fans are absolutely loving a clip on social media of defender Christopher Jullien holding back youngster Jeremie Frimpong by the collar, to stop him getting involved in a fracas with Aberdeen.
A Twitter user posted the clip after taking footage from the stands on Saturday during the Hoops’ 2-1 win over the Dons.
The video shows a bit of disagreement between Celtic and Aberdeen players in the wake of Sam Cosgrove’s sending off, with teenager Frimpong eventually looking to get right stuck in.
However, experienced professional Jullien is soon on the scene and playing his ‘big brother’ role to stop Frimpong from getting in any disciplinary bother.
Rather brilliantly, the pair share a laugh and Frimpong heeds the words of the 26-year-old.
You can see the moment below.

At the time of writing the clip has received thousands of likes and retweets, with the view count sitting at a massive 196,000. It seems destined to go down as another of those classic Scottish football moments we’ve seen plenty of over the last decade.
The joy that Frimpong continues to bring to fans both on and off the pitch is brilliant to see. He’s quite a character and this latest moment will only further endear him with fans.
On a more serious note, it’s also fantastic to see Jullien show his leadership credentials and awareness for his fellow teammates, recognising that Scott Brown Boli Bolingoli were more than capable of dealing with the whining of Aberdeen.
These supporters have taken to Twitter over the last 24 hours to share their thoughts on it all…
That's the clip of the season 😂😂
