Celtic recently confirmed the signing of Timothy Weah from Paris Saint-Germain on a sixth-month loan deal with manager Brendan Rodgers keen to bolster his squad being well aware he has a title race on his hands.
The promising 18-year-old arrives to give the Celtic boss more firepower up front, and has since spoken about what drew him to the club.
“He [Rodgers] said Celtic is one of the best clubs to play for and the fans are incredible,” Weah was quoted saying by the Daily Mail.
“It seems everyone who knows about Celtic knows they are historical and, if you play here, expect diehard fans. I watched the videos and realised that,” the USA international added.
Weah’s move to Celtic was also endorsed by the player’s father, the legendary George Weah, who saw it as being a great opportunity, showing the reputation and pulling power the Scottish giants still have.
When it comes to talented youngsters in Europe, as already seen with the likes of Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard, Celtic Park remains an attractive destination.
And Weah’s move there, on top of his comments, is further evidence if more was ever needed for those doubting the club’s stature.
