Timothy Weah has posed with a Celtic shirt alongside his mum and aunt following his loan move from Paris Saint-Germain.

Weah, the son of former AS Monaco and AC Milan player and current Liberia president George, has scored twice in six games for PSG and netted once in eight internationals. "He has a long career ahead of him but he has those natural attributes in terms of his pace and technique", Rodgers said in a club statement.

"He's been in the PSG squad and featured for them in pre-season".

Weah revealed he received "a lot of offers" once he made it known he wanted to go on loan, but "one offer stood out and that was Celtic".

"He has really good qualities technically, and tactically is always improving his game".

LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 15: Timothy Weah of the United States is challenged by Trent Alexander-Arnold of England during the International Friendly match between England and United States at Wembley Stadium on November 15, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

"I am just looking to play and go step by step". "Over the past few years, they have been really good in the Premier League and had some good positional finishes as well".

"I would stress that there is no "option to buy" clause at the end of the loan and he will be back with us at the end of the season".

"I'm like, 'Yeah, I had a meeting with the gaffer and I'm really loving the team and really loving the club and I'm going to come here'. He's the right man to help me develop and get the best out of me".

"I am so excited to be a bhoy and part of the Celtic family".

According to ESPN, should Weah impress and his game develops then he could in all likelihood extend his stay at Parkhead for the "entirety of next season".
