Celtic started the hunt for the tenth Scottish title in a row on Sunday with a big win. The 51-time champion won 5-1 against Hamilton Academical, partly due to a goal from Dutchman Jeremie Frimpong.
Nineteen-year-old Frimpong made the 2-0 after half an hour on the empty Celtic Park. The right back tapped at the second post from close by after a sharp cross from left back Greg Taylor.
French striker Odsonne Edouard accounted for a hat-trick at Celtic, while Polish substitute Patryk Klimala signed for the fifth goal of the home team in the ninetieth minute. Scott Martin made Hamilton's only goal (2-1).
Frimpong, who was included in the Manchester City youth academy at the age of nine, has played for Celtic since last season. The international of the Orange under 20 came to 21 official duels and two goals in his first year at 'The Bhoys'.
The previous season of the Scottish Premier League was definitively shut down in May after a lot of controversy due to the corona crisis, after which league-leader Celtic was named champion. The team of trainer Neil Lennon can achieve a Scottish unique this year by conquering the title for the tenth season in a row.
