Celtic right-back Jeremie Frimpong has been a revelation since he arrived from Manchester City in the summer, and he showed once again against Livingston on Saturday why he has been so widely praised.
The Dutchman provided the assist for James Forrest to put the Hoops 3-0 up at the weekend, taking him on to one goal and two assists in just four league starts this season.
Fans on Twitter are very excited by Frimpong’s potential:
He's ridiculously good.

Hatem Abd Elhamed may be injured, but Frimpong is also keeping Moritz Bauer out of the team at the moment with his stellar performances.
Of course, the teenager still has some work to do defensively, and he will face bigger tests than Livingston at home, but he has been up to the challenge every time he has started for Celtic so far.
Manager Neil Lennon has been full of praise for Frimpong, and rightly so considering the 18-year-old had not even made his senior debut until this season.
