Former Celtic right-back Mark Wilson has heaped praise on Dutch wing-back Jeremie Frimpong for a fantastic debut season in the Hoops.

Frimpong has played outstanding in his unexpected debut season for the Bhoys after a very surprising transfer from English giants Manchester City last summer.

Many Hoops fans thought Lennon was wasting money on the Dutchman and that Frimpong would be nothing more than a reserve player, but how wrong we all were.

At just 19 years old, Frimpong has cemented himself as one of Lennon’s main players.

“He’s been outstanding, he’s the best right-back in the country when he plays. I’ve not seen many people get by him.1

“He’s made the occasional mistake but nothing catastrophic. He’s the modern-day full-back – he’s been a joy to watch.
