Former Celtic hero on verge of historic season tweets to show love for Hoops after title success

One former Celtic man has paid tribute to his old club’s latest Premiership title success.

Former Celtic favourite Jeremie Frimpong has sent a message to Hoops fans after Wednesday night’s events. Brendan Rodgers’ men needed a point to win the Premiership title, but they took three from a usually solid Kilmarnock side, winning 5-0 at Rugby Park to cap a memorable evening.

The Hoops have showed real metal to come back from behind against Rangers in the title race and avoid any real slip-ups during the final month or so. Celtic will be hoping to kick on from this point, with Rodgers starting his second reign at the club with that all-important title, while they could also add an FA Cup to the mix, still yet to face Rangers in the final.

As for former Hoops star Frimpong, who won a treble with the club in 2020 ahead of his move for Bayer Leverkusen, he is also enjoying a memorable season. The full-back has become a world-class player, forming a key part of Xabi Alonso’s side that is on the brink of completing an unbeaten Bundesliga title-winning campaign.

On top of all that, Frimpong and his teammates are also in the Europa League and DFB-Pokal finals, offering them the chance to do the treble. It could be the second treble of Frimpong’s career, while he is also hoping to win his first European crown.

But the success hasn’t distracted the 23-year-old from Celtic’s efforts, and the former Hoop took to social media to acknowledge the efforts of his old side on Wednesday night. Quoting Celtic’s tweet about becoming league champions again, Frimpong wrote on X: “Both champions, love it." A classy move from Frimpong, who clearly still keeps an eye on his old club.
