‘Oh my days!’ – ‘Luckily I’m better with the ball than with the scissors,’ Frimpong

JEREMIE FRIMPONG is, according to Thomas O’Sullivan, “better at cutting through defences than ribbons” and he’s certainly got a point. Frimpong has excelled since breaking into the side and has become a real fans favourite. However he was slightly less accomplished in his performance today in a shopping centre just down the road from Ibrox.

Celtic’s charismatic wing-back was down at Braehead today to open the club’s latest store and the player and the staff in the new Celtic store were all wearing ‘Oh My Days’ t-shirts. Frimpong, made this his catch-phrase after the League Cup final win over the Rangers at Hampden in December. Frimpong was unfortunate to get a red card and as he conceded a penalty but Fraser Forster saved well from the hapless Alfredo Morelos who has never scored a goal against Celtic to this day.

Frimpong anxiously waited the final whistle and was absolutely ecstatic when he was interviewed and used his ‘Oh My Days’ catch-phrase for the first time. The interview went viral and notched up hundreds of thousand of views.

Frimpong was back in the squad and on the bench yesterday in the 2-1 up at Aberdeen. He’s been out since being carried off on a stretcher at Rugby Park last month after a shocking challenge from Alan Power. It looked like his season was over but thankfully the damage wasn’t as bad as those at the game feared. He stands a chance of playing in Copenhagen on Thursday – and this would be a European debut for the Dutch star.

He wasn’t registered in time to play in the group stages but has been added as one of the three changes allowed for the Round of 32 and all the way to the Final. No other changes to the 32 squads are now allowed.

The players dropping out are Lewis Morgan and Scotty Sinclair who have left the club in the January window and Marian Shved who has failed to sufficiently impress manager Neil Lennon. Frimpong is joined in Celtic’s Europa League squad by the two new January signings Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro, who has yet to make his Celtic debut.

Here’s young Jeremie Frimpong opening the new Celtic store at Braehead earlier today and check out the scissor action!
