It was going so well for Celtic when Alan Power decided to go in on Jeremie Frimpong. The follow-through caught Jeremie’s planted leg – the youngster went down and signalled immediately that he was in trouble.
The replays make for uncomfortable watching, Sky Sports cameras playing it over and over again as the defender was strapped into a stretcher.
Celtic dominated the game and won 3-1 in the end, while we should be celebrating, the supporters are now anxious to hear how Jeremie is doing.
It just doesn’t look good at all. What makes it worse was Powers initial reaction to the tackle and then the Kilmarnock fans who booed Jeremie off the field as he was being stretchered off.
When a professional player has been injured you usually see a show of respect from both sets of fans but not in this instance – the Killie fans true to form, booing a young, talented lad being taken off the field in a stretcher.
These Celtic supporters aren’t happy.
Disgusting tackle on one of Scottish football’s brightest stars, Jeremie Frimpong.
Alan Power tackles him at the knee and nearly snaps his leg in half.
Needless aggression from a two-bit thug became with zero talent but can shout his way around a football pitch.

Frimpong now going off injured after another reckless and unpunished challenge from Power.
There’s various reasons why Scotland seem incapable these days of producing technically gifted players. The standard of refereeing is unquestionably one of them. https://t.co/KEHpisoDyM
