He's come from 'Nowhere' - Exclusive: Celtic teen leaves ex-Ger drooling
Alan Hutton admits he is looking forward to seeing more of Celtic full-back Jeremie Frimpong next season.
The former Rangers and Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, insists that the 19-year-old has seriously impressed during his first campaign at Parkhead.
Frimpong, who signed from Manchester City last summer, has gone from promising youngster to established first-team talent this season, battling with the likes of Moritz Bauer and Hatem Abd Elhamed for game time.
Hutton insists it has been a remarkable rise for the young defender and says he is very excited about the teenager’s future.
Hutton told Football Insider: “Frimpong’s been a revelation this season, he came out of nowhere – he wasn’t even in the European squads.
“He’s gone from strength to strength, he looks like a very talented player – one for the future. He’s very exciting.

“He’s the new mould of full-back – the Trent Alexander-Arnold, the Andy Robertson, that type of player where you’re playing in such a good team your main focus is going forward. They’re so strong at the back it allows him to just concentrate on going forward.
“He’s had a taste of it this year, he’s played in the cup final, every time he’s been called upon he’s been there and done it and lived up to it.
Frimpong joined Celtic from Man City last summer, when he signed a four-year contract.
