Jeremie Frimpong delighted to win 'dream' Scottish Premier League title

Defender Jeremie Frimpong says it is a 'dream come true' to win his first Scottish Premier League title.

The Dutch born Ghanaian right back became a first time winner of the competition after Celtic were declared champions following the cancellation of the league due to COVID-19.

"Dreams do come true if you stick to your goal!," he posted on Twitter.

Celtic were confirmed champions of the Scottish Premier League on Monday with Hearts of Midlothian relegated following a decision at a board meeting after the 12 clubs agreed at the end of last week that completing the campaign was unfeasible.

An average points per game played has been used to determine final placings.

The only change to the table from when football was halted on 13 March is that St Johnstone go sixth, above Hibernian.

The Champions were 13 points ahead of nearest challengers Rangers - having played a game more - when the season was put on hold. There were eight more games to be played.

This is the ninth Scottish Premier League title on a row for Celtic and Frimpong's first, having joined from Manchester City last summer.
