The Celtic first-team are certainly putting in the hard yards on the training pitch. That much has been evident in recent months as we’ve embarked on a lengthy winning run and marched clear at the top of the Premiership.

That run extended to nine league victories on the trot on Wednesday as we defeated Hearts 2-0 in bleak conditions. But the Tynecastle clash also provided a moment that shows that the players are working on off the field issues. Well, sort of.

After Ryan Christie slotted in the opener on the half hour mark, he indulged in a coordinated celebration with Jeremie Frimpong. Despite looking more at home at the Emirates Stadium, it was a moment that showed the current spirit amongst Neil Lennon’s first-team stars.

And it was a moment that wasn’t lost on some members of the Celtic support either.

Frimpong and Christie are clearly getting on well

The incident between the two players may have split opinion, depending on your age, but it did go to show just how much a part of the dressing room Frimpong is already.

The teenager has only played a handful of games for the club but he already has a huge place in the changing room. It wouldn’t surprise you if he had a choreographed celebrations worked out for the rest of his Hoops team-mates. Perhaps we’ll get to see those other ones in the coming weeks.

The Dutchman was imperious again on what could have been a testing night at Tynecastle. Frimpong was targeted in the early stages by the Jambos but he stood up to the challenge well and offered a real threat in an attacking sense after the break.

Be it on the pitch or off it, he’s having a real impact with all things Celtic at present. Long may it continue.
