When Jeremie Frimpong Gave The Most Brilliant Post Match Interview
Celtic player Jeremie Frimpong gave one of the best post match interviews ever, after getting sent off in the Scottish League Cup final in 2019.
Frimpong spoke candidly to BT Sport after ten-man Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 to secure their fourth Scottish League Cup in a row and 10th consecutive domestic trophy.
The then 18-year-old saw red for his foul on Alfredo Morelos in the second-half, but Celtic survived Rangers' onslaught to win at Hampden Park.
And speaking after the cup final, the promising right-back revealed he was "panicking" as he watched on in a refreshingly raw interview.
"Oh my days," he said. "When you get sent off like that, I was inside panicking. It was the worst feeling ever.
"Every time Rangers got the ball I was just panicking. The time was going so slow, but the team held it through, and I am buzzing obviously."
Frimpong's post-match interview sent social media into overdrive.
"Gwarn yout. Being himself in front of cameras," one social media user wrote.

A second Tweeted: "How can not love this guy man?"
A third added: "Oh My Days! Just got love this bhoy!! That smile is infectious."
Hoops legend Chris Sutton also praised Frimpong for his interview.
Post match press interviews are usually criticised for being a bit too media managed, especially when it comes to players, so Frimpong certainly made for a refreshing change.
He's not the only one though, Leicester City's James Maddison delighted fans recently when he spoke to Geoff Shreeves following his side's 2-0 win over Chelsea in the league.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Maddison said, "It's a good one psychologically because we've worked really hard and halfway through the season, to be sitting top, is a great achievement for us and one we can build on.
"But like you said, don't think you've seen a more complete team performance from us so far this season.
"Had a bit of everything, a bit of tactical nous and quality when needed."
More of this please everyone.
