Dutch-born Ghanaian teenager Jeremie Frimpong says he is elated to with his move to Celtic after being named Young Player of the Year for 2019-2020.

The 19-year-old polled 40 per cent of the total votes cast by Celtic fans to win the laurel ahead of teammates Kris Ajer and Odsonne Edouard.

Speaking to the official club website, the 19-year-old said, “It feels amazing to have joined Celtic. What a massive club to be part of! I’m just lucky to have been picked and I’m grateful for everything.

"I’m just happy to be here and I just want to get on the pitch and show the fans everything that I’ve got.

“I’m looking forward to start training with my new team-mates and getting to know them.

"They’ve got more experience than me, so I’m hoping they’ll be able to help me as a player.

“Oh, my days! Celtic is a big, big team. To be winning the Young Player of the Year award for Celtic, that’s unreal. I’m just so happy with myself. It’s all good.

"Of course, this award is not the only goal. I want to win more trophies as a team, as many as I can. For me, my main focus ahead is just to win.”, he added.

Frimpong has been in fine form this season for the Scottish champions, making 22 appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals with four assists.

The youngster moved to Celtic Park from Manchester City last summer on a four-year deal and has grown to become one of manager Neil Lennon's most trusted players.
