All eyes have been on Jeremie Frimpong since he was stretchered off during the Celtic game on Wednesday night. The Celtic youngster was smashed by Alan Power late in the game and had to be strapped up before leaving the field.
Neil Lennon’s initial assessment was it could be just bruising and wouldn’t rule him out of the Ross County game.
However, in his pre-match press conference the Celtic manager has revealed the player WON’T make the County game.
🗣️ NL: "@JeremieFrimpong won’t be fit for tomorrow. He’s had a scan and we are waiting on the results. We don’t think it’s as bad as we first anticipated.”

With Elhamed out injured, it will be up to Moritz Bauer to fill in.
It’s crazy to think the referee didn’t deem Power’s challenge on Frimpong worthy of even a free kick. The Kilmarnock player getting away with such a ferocious challenge that could have had worse repercussions for Jeremie.
We hope the scan is positive and he doesn’t miss to many more games.
