When Timothy Weah signed for Celtic, most fans likely didn’t know what to expect. The PSG youngster was relatively unproven at the highest level, and a short-term loan deal didn’t seem to make a lot of sense.
However, he’s made a quick start to life at Celtic – indeed, he’ already opened his goalscoring account – and if he continues to improve at his current rate, we could have quite the player on our hands within a matter of weeks.
The youngster deserves a lot of praise for his quick start to life at Celtic, but he’s also placed a lot of emphasis on Brendan Rodgers, and his statement on the boss sums up just how important he is for the Bhoys.
TW: “Brendan Rodgers is like a father figure to all his players. He can build a player and teach you to become a man as well. As an 18-year-old you need that support from a coach and he’s really given me that.”

As per the official Celtic Twitter, he said: “Brendan Rodgers is like a father figure to all his players. He can build a player and teach you to become a man as well. As an 18-year-old you need that support from a coach and he’s really given me that”.
It’s never going to be easy to move to a new club, especially as a youngster, but judging from this comment, Rodgers has built a family-like group at Celtic – and that’s played a big role in Weah’s quick settlement in Scotland.
Different managers have different styles, but it’s clear that the Hoops boss’ methods are working on all fronts. Not only are Celtic getting results, but Rodgers is bringing in young players that perhaps wouldn’t be the first choice of fans – and he’s turning them into stars.
This statement from Weah sums up what most fans already know – Celtic would struggle to do better than Rodgers. The manager continues to prove his worth every single week.
