Perhaps one of the most refreshing things about Jeremie Frimpong is that he doesn’t spend too much of his life on social media.

The teenage Celtic full-back is clearly pretty humble despite a meteoric rise from Manchester City’s Reserves to the Hoops first-team in recent months.

He already knows he is adored by the Celtic faithful. However, if he needed a refresher after a few weeks off the pitch, he need only check his recent Twitter mentions.

Last night, Frimpong posted a motivational training update following on from the club’s mid-season trip to Dubai.

And the Celtic support swarmed his replies, showing him that the love is still very much alive.


Frimpong has had some time to ponder in Dubai

Hopefully the break has done the young defender a whole lot of good. He was one of the stand out figures of the first half of the season, despite only making his debut in late September.

However, it is fair to say that he struggled a little more in the final few matches of the month.

Frimpong was still a good outlet in our derby defeat to Rangers but his use of the ball could have been much better as we chased a leveller on the day.

He’ll have had a bit of time to reflect on that in Dubai. He really shouldn’t beat himself up for either display against Rangers, and should instead use it as a positive for the future.

Frimpong’s displays will have a big say on how we get on during the second-half of the season.

Hopefully he is fit and raring to go for Saturday as he faces Partick Thistle – the team it all started for him against.
