Celtic manager Neil Lennon has extolled Ghanaian youngster Jeremie Frimpong describing him as one of the best young players he has ever seen in the game.
Neil Lennon made this comment following Frimpong’s impressive performance for the Hoops in their 2-0 win over Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday.
The 19-year-old bagged his debut goal for the club as Celtic returned to the top of the table.
The highly-rated right-back opened the scoring for the home side before Odsonne Edouard doubled their lead to pick up all three points.
“He’s one of the best kids I’ve ever seen and I’ve been around the game a long time,” Lennon declared.
“I don’t want to big him up too much but you’ve seen it for yourself.”
Frimpong joined the Scottish champions in the summer from Manchester City on a four-year.
