JEREMIE FRIMPONG has posted a message thanking Celtic supporters and the club after the defender agreed a move to German giants Bayer Leverkusen.

The right-back has been out-of-sorts this term after an impressive debut campaign in Glasgow's east end last season, but appeared increasingly unsettled before sealing a move to the Bundesliga on Wednesday.

Frimpong posted a video of highlights from his spell at Parkhead, and included a message of thanks to the club, the fans and his former manager Neil Lennon.
