Weah: Scoring on Celtic debut ‘like something out of a dream’

Timothy Weah scored on his debut for the Scottish club against Airdrieonians following his recent loan move from French giants PSG.

The USA international put in a good performance in front of the Celtic faithful, helping the Hoops gain a 3-0 win over lowly Airdrie in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.

Weah was effusive in his praise for the Parkhead crowd, saying it will give him confidence going forward as the club try to retain their grip on the Scottish league title.

“That’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and have ever played in,” Weah told Celtic’s official website.

“The Celtic fans, when I scored, it was like something out of a dream. Even when Scott scored, you could feel the fans, how they really are, and I’m really honoured and blessed to be here.

“It’s always a good feeling to get that first goal on the books, and now I can go on to the next game with a bit more confidence. It’s now time for me to get back to training, continue to work on my finishing, and continue to work on gelling with the boys, even better than we have now, and just listening to all the info the gaffer’s given me, and paying attention to all the guys in training.

“I’m really happy, and it’s now it’s just a step-by-step for me. The first goal is out of the way, and now it’s about continuing to get more and to try and work harder.”
