New Celtic signing Timothy Weah admits he has fallen instantly “in love” with his new club.

The 18-year-old son of legendary striker George Weah has completed a six-month loan move from Paris Saint-Germain.

He met his new teammates in Dubai on Tuesday, as he looks to make an immediate impact at Parkhead.

In an interview with BBC Scotland, Weah spoke glowingly about representing Celtic and says he will give his all:

I am in love with Celtic so I am really happy.

It was a great feeling getting to know a new team and new coaching staff. I can’t wait to get on the field and play in front of those wonderful fans.

It is a wonderful moment for me, and such a blessing with such a great coach like Brendan Rodgers to lead me in the right direction.

He and rest of the coaching staff are going to build me and form me into a really good player, and my team-mates are going to help me mature.

My father has played at Celtic before. He has told me it is really intense and it is good to grow as a footballer by playing for this club.

Brendan Rodgers will hope that Weah can make a key contribution in the Scottish Premiership title race.

Rangers look set to battle the Hoops all the way to the finish line, with the capture of Jermain Defoe a statement of intent from Steven Gerrard’s side.

Weah has already won eight caps for the USA, scoring once, against Bolivia last May.
