Celtic starlet Jeremie Frimpong has broken his silence after suffering an injury late on against Kilmarnock in the Hoops’ recent 3-1 win at Rugby Park.
The full-back was caught by a challenge by Alan Power, and was stretched off with what looked to be a serious injury.
Now he has taken to social media late on Thursday, posting a photo of himself and Leigh Griffiths on his Twitter page, with the caption ‘can’t break us down’.

Unsurprisingly many Celtic fans have responded to Frimpong’s comments. One fan proclaimed that he was going to be a ‘Celtic legend’.
Whilst another said that Frimpong inspired him to write his first ever Tweet.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Frimpong’s comment:
Your going to be a Celtic legend! Love your commitment.

Never tweeted before ( too old – wrong generation) However just wanted to wish you a speedy recovery. You have been breathtaking this year, one of the stand out players for Celtic. Make sure your back for Europe.

Celtic fans will be desperately hoping that Frimpong’s injury is not as bad as it looked, as he has been a stand-out performer for the club this season.
Despite being just 19, he has made the right-back position his own. That is testament to just how good a player he has been.
Manager’s update will be eagerly awaited
No doubt Neil Lennon will provide an update on Frimpong’s condition when he does his press conference ahead of Celtic’s game against Ross County on Saturday.
It would be a real boost should he be able to feature in the game. When he was stretchered off, it looked as if he could be out of action for a long while.
However, should he not be fit, there is no point in rushing him back to the team. As long as he recovers from his injury, that is the most important thing.
