Some Celtic fans react to social media 'Christmas present'
Any Celtic fans looking at the Hoops official Twitter account on Christmas Day would have been given a bit of a surprise. Celtic uploaded a video of some players in the squad signing their favourite Christmas songs.
The likes of Odsonne Edouard, Vakoun Bayo and Jeremie Frimpong gave the Hoops fans a treat of sorts, as they sang for the supporters on Christmas Day.
A #Christmas present for you, Celts!

The video was obviously not to be taken seriously, and some Celtic fans on social media took it in the way it was intended.
However, one fan did express disappointment that the ‘Christmas present’ wasn’t a new contract for Odsonne Edouard. Hopefully he gets a new deal soon, but would Celtic announce it on Christmas Day? Unlikely. Another fan wanted the club to announce the signing of Victor Wanyama.
“Stick to the football”
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to the unexpected ‘Christmas present’.
Give Frimpong the megaphone when we win the league at the end of the season 🍀

It is back to serious business for the Hoops on Boxing Day. The likes of Frimpong, Edouard and Bolingoli might well start for the team when Celtic take on St Mirren. The trio have been key to Celtic’s success this season, and as the Hoops aim to finish the year at the top of the league they will be key men for the Hoops.
Starlet is already a cult figure
It is interesting to see that Frimpong is such a cult figure at the club when you consider that he has only just broken into the side.
The fact that the fan on social media wants him to sing into a megaphone – like Kieran Tierney used to – when the team wins the league shows just how popular he has become in such a short period.
He is one of the Celtic success stories of 2019, and hopefully the player continues to play a key role for the club for years to come.
