Celtic set for major cash boost after latest Fabrizio Romano update

With some of the top teams in Europe rumoured to be interested in the right-back, former Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong appears destined to be at the centre of a transfer war this summer.

The 22-year-old just had a great Bundesliga season with Bayer Leverkusen, and has held his place in the Netherlands national team.

And now, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Frimpong could be “one to watch” this summer as far as a transfer goes after the player’s agents “meeting” with the management of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United.

Romano tweeted,Jeremie Frimpong remains one to watch this summer as his agent met with Barcelona, Bayern and Man United almost two months ago.  

“Dutch RB completed the season with 10 assists and 9 goals. Bayer Leverkusen hope to keep him but they’re aware of big clubs interest.”

Leverkusen will be extremely confident of doubling or possibly quadrupling, the £11.5M cost paid to acquire Frimpong’s services from the Chelsea previous season, which he concluded with 10 assists and nine goals.

This is outstanding news for Celtic as they will be due anything up to 30% of any future fee that Frimpong manages to garner due to a release clause inserted into the transfer deal with Leverkusen.

Trophy Day celebrations show a brilliant side to Daizen Maeda the Celtic fans have never seen before

Celtic star Daizen Maeda is known for his hard work rate, speed and his ice cold manner.

The Hoops star rarely shows any emotion when playing for Celtic. Sometimes we will see a smile when he hits the back of the net. But more often than not the man has ice in his veins.

His reaction to the red card at Easter Road is testament to that. But on trophy day we saw a different side to Maeda.

A side that shows the Japanese speed king as a fun loving, family fan. And it’s just brilliant.

Have a watch of this:

Maeda has been superb for Celtic over the last season and a half. A January 2022 signing, he kadenan instant impact with a goal scoring debut against Hibs at Celtic Park.

There have been question marks at times over his final ball and even his finishing, but it cannot be denied that he has been an important signing in the Ange Postecoglou era.

Maeda will be an integral part of Celtic’s plans next season as we look to make an impression on the Champions League.

But it’s great to see this footage as it shows just how settled the Japanese striker is at Celtic.

Rangers fans incredible Hampden fascist banner called out after Celtic defeat

You know how sometimes I write on this site and I say how I’m genuinely never shocked at what these Rangers fans get up to?

Ignore me. Because I’m a liar. No matter how much I see these clowns and no matter how much I listen to their songbook full of bile, they will always end up surprising me.

For example, if I said to you yesterday that there would be a banner from the Ibrox support supporting or promoting Nazi symbolism you would have tole me to f**k off right?

Wrong. A Rangers fan displayed this banner in front of watching millions:

You genuinely have to wonder about the mentality of a person to brazenly display this kind of thing.

But like I said, nothing will ever surprise me again about those fans.

Even before kick off, there was a rousing rendition of The Billy Boys that was completely brushed over by the broadcaster’s and commentators.

But at least the good guys won. Celtic made it through to the final in June where a possible world record eighth treble in a row beckons.

Mark Guidi lays all league pressure on one Glasgow Derby manager. One set of fans won’t be happy

The league title race resumes on Sunday for Celtic with a trip to Dingwall.

The lunchtime kick off will either give Ange the opportunity to extend the lead at the top of the table or keep the nine point advantage intact.

Either way, we are entering the pressure stage of the season and Mark Guid believes that all the pressure is one side in Glasgow.

Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Guidi said, “I think, probably, if we are being realistic, the titles 95-99% in the bag for Celtic.

But if you are at the Rangers camp you should not be giving up. You should still believe that there is a chance.

If they can go to Celtic Park and win, it’s game on.

Michael Beale will have to get his first win against Celtic. That’s what you’ve got to do.

If you want to become a champion and have total belief from support, you’ve got to go and show you can beat your biggest rivals.

If Celtic win at Celtic Park, it’s absolutely all over and that’s another game Michael Beale hasn’t beaten Celtic.”

Is Celtic or Rangers under the most pressure this weekend?

Undoubtedly it is Michael Beale. The Rangers manager cannot afford to drop a single point in the final nine games of the season.

Celtic can. Even if we lost the two Glasgow Derbies, we will still be three points ahead with a superior goal difference and looking at results of the few months, no other team in the SPFL can get near us.

Over to you Beale.
