NEIL LENNON has confirmed when Euro registration rolls around for the last 32 of the Europa League there will be one notable addition.
The inclusion of Jeremie Frimpong has been a long time coming since he made the breakthrough at Celtic over the past three months. However, due to the player only joining Celtic less than 48 hours before the group stage registration deadline, there was no time to assess him before making the call to include Jeremie or not.
Now with the club firmly in the last 32, they get to drop players out of the team and add new stars – including January signings. Neil Lennon has confirmed Jeremie will be in contention to play Copenhagen in February.
“We didn’t realise how rapid his progression would be and we didn’t have a lot of time to analyse how good he was going to be before naming the European squad.” Lennon told CelticTV.
“But we’ll definitely include him in it for the second half of the season.”
Since Hatem Elhamed has been out injured, Jeremie has become the number one right back at the club and for good reason. Moritz Bauer was brought in as a backup to Hatem but with Frimpong’s rise to prominence.
It will be great to see the wee man on the Euro stage.
