Timothy Weah revealed he was delighted after coming off the bench to help Celtic to a difficult 2-0 victory away against St Johnstone on Sunday afternoon.
The forward, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, replaced the injured Odsonne Edouard in the second half with the scores level at 0-0, and played a key role in helping Celtic come away from McDiarmid Park with all three points.
Weah created the assist for James Forrest to give the away side the lead 13 minutes from time, before the American scored in the closing minutes to ensure the victory.
And speaking after the game, the 18-year-old revealed it was an “incredible feeling” to help his side win the game.
It’s an incredible feeling coming into a difficult game and scoring. The most important was the assist for me because it was my first assist of the season. To get it at that time was amazing and to see the joy on James’ face was special. It was a huge relief and the celebration with the fans just topped it off.
Weah’s goal against St Johnstone took his tally to three goals from five appearances for Celtic since joining on loan, and the forward was full of praise for his new teammates following the victory
At such a young age, coming in and having a game like that is always good for your confidence. All credit to the team, they played 100 percent throughout the whole match. Some calls didn’t really go our way. We had a tough time getting the first goal and it was a relief when it finally came.I’m so proud of James for getting on the end of the cross and I want to thank the coaching staff having the confidence in me to bring me on.
