PSG forward Timothy Weah joins Celtic

"It is a wonderful moment for me, and such a blessing with such a great coach like Brendan Rodgers to lead me in the right direction", he told BBC Scotland (via BBC Sport).

The 20-year-old joined Celtic on a season-long loan last season and during the summer signed permanently at Parkhead.

Timothy Weah, the 18-year-old USA forward with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), has joined Scottish champions Celtic on a six-month loan deal, the Glasgow club announced on Monday.

But Weah also revealed a secret meeting at Lennoxtown had taken place back in 2018 where Brendan Rodgers took him around the training facilities and spoke to him and his representatives about what he thought about the young forward; ultimately convincing him to make the move.

Weah, who joined the PSG academy in 2014, has had limited opportunities in the first team, making just two league appearances this season and none since August 18.

"Oli liked what Celtic had to offer and he has obviously got the opportunity to play on a great stage which should be of benefit to him".

'He has really good qualities technically, and tactically is always improving his game.

"He and rest of the coaching staff are going to build me and form me into a really good player, and my team-mates are going to help me mature". "He'll add competition to the squad".

The Bhoys are now at the top of the Scottish Premiership table by virtue of goal difference and will resume competitive action in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on the 19th January before facing St. Mirren in the Premiership.
