On-loan Celtic forward Timothy Weah has found himself in hot water with Paris Saint-Germain fans recently.
Get French Football News report that the striker was forced to apologise after a social media mishap.
Weah was seen liking a post on Instagram from Manchester United’s Tahith Chong, who was celebrating the Premier League side’s recent victory in the Champions League against his parent club.
Albeit an unfortunate misunderstanding, it appears that the decision by Weah did not sit well with some supporters.
Speaking to RMC Sport about the incident, Weah was quick to apologise.
I had finished watching the match and at that moment I wasn’t really thinking about being at PSG, I was on route for Glasgow in some way. Tahith Chong is one of my good friends in this industry, for 5 years now. I liked this photo and commented on it without thinking. It was a mistake on my part, to not think what the consequences could be or the reaction of people.
There were bad reactions from fans and I absolutely do not blame them. It was a lesson for me and it is a good thing because now, I know how important it is for them and I respect that. I did not have the intention at all to put myself in this situation or to lack respect for the fans. I apologise to them, I apologise to the club for that, for those who could have felt hurt by it. I think that it was just a misunderstanding.
Weah’s social media antics do not stop there though. After Sunday’s win over Rangers, he appeared to send a cheeky dig towards Steven Gerrard.
The Rangers boss rather sarcastically played down the atmosphere at Celtic Park, claiming it wouldn’t be a ‘lion’s den’.
In a post after the game, Weah did no more than use the appropriate hashtag, ‘#lionsden’.
Weah is currently on loan at Celtic until the end of the season and will be looking to get some regular game time between now and the end of the campaign with the club closing in on another league title.
The American has been in and out of the first-team picture since arriving and is yet to really get a true chance to prove his worth.
Timothy Weah's career so far
New York Red Bulls
Born in New York, it was at MLS side New York Red Bulls where Weah got his first true taste of professional football, or soccer as they like to call it!
Trial at Chelsea
His dad, George Weah organised a trial for him at Chelsea in 2013, but the player would not go on to join the Premier League side. A decision they may come to regret later down the line.
Moving to PSG
Weah and his family moved to France in 2017 and it was at this point where he would join up with PSG’s academy side.
Making his PSG debut
Weah made his competitive debut for PSG against Troyes AC back in March 2018 and the player still has aspirations to break through at the club.
He joined Celtic on a six-month loan deal in January 2019 in an attempt to get some senior football under his belt.
