Celtic legend says Weah will be a ‘real asset’ for the Hoops

Legendary former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner believes Timothy Weah can become a real asset for the club, after joining the Hoops on loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Rep of Ireland ‘keeper was full of praise for Weah after the forward scored on his debut during a routine 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Airdrieonians on Saturday.

‘Timothy Weah looks quick and strong. He can be a real asset for Celtic.’ Bonner told BBC Sportsound.

‘I’m not sure Oliver Burke is an out-and-out striker, but his movement was better in the second half and he’ll be happy to get 90 minutes under his belt.’

United States international Weah arrived earlier this month from French champions PSG and was named on the bench for Brendan Rodger’s men, for their Fourth Round Scottish Cup tie. He caught the eye after being brought on for Scott Sinclair, with 20 minutes to go, bagging his first goal for the Hoops during his cameo.

The 18-year-old will be hoping for regular game time at Celtic Park this season, as the club gears up for an eighth straight Scottish title. Celtic are currently neck-and-neck with Rangers at the top of SPL, with both sides on 42 points, although the Hoops have an all important game in hand on their bitter rivals, going into the second-half of the season.
