Watch: Jeremie Frimpong's Reaction To Dramatic Cup Win Is Amazing

Watch: Jeremie Frimpong's Reaction To Dramatic Cup Win Is Amazing

Celtic claimed a fourth consecutive Scottish League Cup yesterday, keeping alive their hopes of yet another domestic clean sweep this season.

They certainly did not have it all their own way in the final against Rangers. After Christopher Jullien gave them the lead on the hour mark, a goal which should not have stood due to offside, Steven Gerrard's side had a golden opportunity to equalise.

18-year old Jeremie Frimpong brought Alfredo Morelos down in the penalty area and was sent off as a result. While the forward would miss the resulting spot kick, it still brought about plenty of nerves for the young former Manchester City player.

He was helpless as the penalty was being taken and was even afraid to watch. As he said in his post-match interview, his fears soon turned to relief.

When Fraser saved it, I heard the fans shouting because I had my head turned. I was like 'which side was it', then I turned around and it was our side so I was buzzing.

I was sat there with the worst feeling ever. Oh my days, the minutes go so slow. I wanted to cry, but when they blew the las whistle I was buzzing, I was buzzing...

Oh my days, best game ever, best game ever. It was really good.
