TT Battle: Timothy Weah vs Oliver Burke

Brendan Rodgers has been busy making additions to his attacking ranks at Celtic this winter.

With the challenge from Rangers appearing to be a greater threat this season, the Bhoys have been keen to strengthen their own squad and bring new faces into their side.

Both Timothy Weah and Oliver Burke have joined up with the Hoops at Celtic Park this January and will look to have an impact for the Scottish Premiership champions.

However, which man will make a more significant impact at Paradise?

Timothy Weah

Weah arrived at Celtic on a loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain – a club the Scottish outfit appear to have a great relationship with.

Valued at £4.5million by Transfermarkt, the United States of America international is an exciting talent and could look to use his spell at Celtic Park as a means of getting his career within European football on track.

There will be a general excitement about what the 18-year-old will be able to bring to the Glaswegians, which will have been added by the fact that his father is George Weah – who won the Ballon d’Or award in 1995.

TT Grade: B+

Oliver Burke

Burke has struggled to make an impact at West Bromwich Albion and will be looking to get his career back on track with a spell at Celtic.

The Scotland international is an impressive individual that has a huge amount of potential and a move to the champions could be ideal for him to get playing regular football once again.

Still only 21-years-old, should he be given the chance to shine, Celtic could have a real steal on their hands as they look to keep their dominance at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

TT Grade: B-

The Verdict:

Both international attackers should be considered to be great additions for Celtic this winter and will surely have fans excited about what they could achieve for the club.

Despite the ability Burke has, there could be some questions about whether he will be able to rise to the top considering he has not been able to get a chance at West Brom this season.

Weah is likely to get fans in the stands at Celtic Park further off their seats with the potential he has to offer the side and could play a key role in helping Rodgers’ side retain their Scottish Premiership title.
