  • Timothy Weah: I'll give everything for the crest on my heart

    Timothy Weah: I'll give everything for the crest on my heart

  • Timothy Weah has promised Celtic fans he will give his all to help the team every time he pulls on the green and white Hoops, and he admitted he is excited to get to work on the manager’s plan for him.

    The Paris Saint-Germain forward joined up with his new team-mates in Dubai today (Tuesday) for his first training session with Celtic, having joined the Hoops on loan until the end of this season.

    Speaking to the Celtic TV immediately after training, the 18-year-old gave his thoughts on joining Celtic and meeting his new team-mates for the first time.

    “It’s a great honour joining this historic club,” Timothy Weah said. “I’m so happy to join Celtic and to be able to be with this great team and work under such a great coach and coaching staff. I can’t wait to play my first game in front of these amazing fans.

    “It was great meeting all the guys. They’re all really nice and a great group. I’ve got to meet the coaching staff and some other people who I never met before.

    “Dubai is a beautiful place and I’m loving being here training with the team, although I can’t wait to get back to Scotland and start training at Lennoxtown each day. I feel it’s just a matter of time for everything to gel together and getting comfortable within the team and the league. It’ll take some time but I’ll try adjust as fast as I can.”

    The USA internationalist also touched on what Brendan Rodgers has planned for him and what he feels he can offer the club during his loan spell.

    “The manager told me what he wants to see from me, which is to play my game and help the team by making runs into spaces and stretching the game,” he said. “I’m so excited to be here. I feel like the manager has a great plan for me and will help me develop as a player. Determination is one word I would use to describe myself. Even on a bad day, I’ll give it my everything.

    “I play for the crest on my heart and that’s what I’m going to give the fans and the team - that fighting spirit. I’ll always keep going until the final whistle blows. That’s what I hope to leave at this club, the passion for this game and that’s what this club represents.”
