It's been coming. Aberdeen's training ground free-kick looks to have gone wrong with their players all running offside... Among the confusion, the ball is played short to Lewis Ferguson, who turns his man and fires past Owain Fon Williams at the near post. The Celtic youngster is loving all aspects of his switch to the Hoops this summer. Celtic right-back Jeremie Frimpong believes he's made the right decision by signing for Celtic from Manchester City during the summer transfer window, speaking to the club's official website.

Frimpong has burst into the Hoops team over the last couple of months, making three appearances for Neil Lennon's side. Subscribe Still just 18, he looks to have exceptional potential, with some fans growing more and more excited about what he can achieve at the club. It's been a big period of adjustment for the teenager, but he's relishing the opportunity and is loving being a part of Lennon's training right now. As quoted by celticfc.net, he said: "I know 100 per cent that this was the right decision to come to Celtic. It's an amazing club to be a part of and I know I can fulfil my potential here, so it's really good.

"Glasgow feels more like home now. When I first came it felt strange, but now everything feels normal and I can call it my home. "The training has been really enjoyable. It's hard work and I'm enjoying it every day. We have a great changing room full of really good people and there's so much quality there too, so I'm learning every day and I'm doing that surrounded by the right people." What next for the youngster? Celtic have a tricky balance to get right when it comes to Frimpong. Lennon has to be patient with his progress and ensure that too much pressure isn't placed on his shoulders. At the same, it's important a player with the talent and potential he has isn't stifled when he's full of confidence. The player isn't registered for European action so isn't about to be thrown into massive group stage encounters, so Lennon should continue to play him in Scottish Premiership matches. He's not let Celtic down so far and looks more than capable of performing at that level. If he can stay in the side consistently, the youngster might find he's quickly added to the Hoops' European squad in January if they make it to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
