Jeremie Frimpong Gave The Least Media-Trained Interview When Celtic Beat Rangers This Season
Celtic youngster Jeremie Frimpong gave one of the best post-match interviews of the season following his side's 1-0 cup final victory over Rangers.
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 19-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.
Frimpong, a Dutch under-19 youth international, signed a four-year deal at Celtic in September 2019 and he made his professional debut against Partick Thistle the same month.
He has also suggested that he wants to follow in the foot steps of Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk.
"I want to be the best player there is. I want to play for the biggest team ever. I want to win the Champions League. I want to hold the World Cup. I want to win as many trophies as I can," he said.
"Look at Virgil Van Dijk, there's the example. Played for Celtic; four years later he nearly wins the Ballon D'Or at Liverpool. He was so close.
"So can I be the best player there is? Yeah, I think I can be. Celtic can help me with that. The history here is crazy. They are so good - one of the biggest teams there is."
