  • Timothy Weah joins Celtic on loan from Paris Saint-Germain

    Timothy Weah joins Celtic on loan from Paris Saint-Germain

    By: Newsroom Staff on 07 Jan, 2019 19:27

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that Timothy Weah has joined the club on a six-month loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain. The highly-rated 18-year-old has scored two goals in six first-team appearances for PSG, while he has also been capped eight times by the United States.

    Timothy will join up with his new Celtic team-mates at their winter training camp in Dubai.

    Speaking to the Celtic View, Brendan Rodgers said: “Timothy’s a young talent who is full international player. He has a long career ahead of him but he has those natural attributes in terms of his pace and technique. He’s hungry too.

    “He’s been in the PSG squad and featured for them in pre-season. With the quality of players they have, it’s difficult for him to get in and get any game-time. They wanted him to go out on loan and saw Celtic as a great possibility.

    “He has really good qualities technically, and tactically is always improving his game. Physically he’s very good, very fast and is a strong player. He’ll add competition to the squad.”
