It was confirmed on Wednesday morning that the 21 year old had signed a new two year contract with the club that will keep him at Kingsholm until the end of the 2013-4 season.
Addressing the media in the run up to Friday evening's Heineken Cup fixture at home to Toulouse (kick off 8pm), Redpath confirmed that he's happy to get the deal done and looking forward to working with Freddie to continue his progression.
"It's great for us to get Freddie here for another two years as he's developing really well as a player.
"He can still have the occasional off day but that's what youth is. But his tactical kicking is continually improving, he's steering the team around better and he's managing to back up 80 minutes after 80 minutes.
"He is a young talent and the key thing for him now is the learning process and still achieving things at the age of 25 and 26 and not just 21.
"A lot of players get there really early but don't then have the mental toughness to remain there and kick on.
"And that's what we're going to work on with Freddie over the next two and a half years. It's an ongoing learning process and it's important that we help him with that.
And with the core of Gloucester's young English back line now committed to the club, Redpath knows the future is exciting.
"Freddie's a good kid and keen to get better. He's come through with the likes of Charlie (Sharples), Henry (Trinder), Davey (Lewis) and Jonny (May).
"Those lads in that back line are desperate to do well and their heart is with Gloucester and we're very fortunate to have them."
