Celtic striker Timothy Weah has hit back at the Kilmarnock players for the rough treatment he was given after coming off the bench on Sunday.

Speaking after the game, as reported by the Daily Record, Weah vented his frustration after being booked.

In regards to my yellow card I just want to say sorry to any Killie fans that were offended and who took it the wrong way.

But with all that being said I was targeted by three players from the moment I stepped on the pitch. Go back and look at all the cheap shots that were taken and the trash talking as well.

To be honest I understand it’s all part of the game. I took it and didn’t let it affect my match but at the end of the game I gave them a taste of their own medicine and took the consequences that came with it.

Weah came off the bench with just over 10 minutes left to play as Celtic went in search of a late winner.

That came in the form of a goal from Scott Brown, which was met with huge celebrations from the Celtic supporters.

Amidst the jubilation of the goal, a number of Celtic supporters made their way onto the pitch to celebrate alongside the players.

As a result of the celebrations, Brown was sent off and Weah saw his name go into the book, a decision he was clearly unhappy about.

Clearly frustrated with the circumstances, it appears that Weah’s emotion got the better of him on what will be a learning curve for the young striker.
