Celtic’s Jeremie Frimpong faced arguably his biggest test so far his in fledgling Celtic career on Thursday, when he made his European debut for the Hoops against Copenhagen.

It wasn’t the easiest of games for the right-back, as he struggled at times, mainly in defence, although he did fairly well on the attacking side of things.

Been superb this season
