Row brewing over Celtic star Weah

9th April 2019, 15:53 by Andy Schooler

Celtic forward Timothy Weah could be called up for international duty by the USA before the end of the current season.

Weah is wanted by his nation to play in the Under-20 World Cup, which gets underway in Poland in May.

The USA's first game is on May 24, the day before the Scottish Cup final – a match Celtic are widely expected to contest. They face Aberdeen in the semis this coming weekend.

Under-20s boss Tab Ramos has admitted he wants Weah in his squad for the tournament but added that he would first have to see if the forward was required by senior team boss Greg Berhalter to compete in the CONCACAF Gold Cup - the equivalent of the European Championship for teams in North America and the

Caribbean, which is being held in June.

Ramos says he wants his squad together a full 10 days before the opening game, which will be against Ukraine.

While he is prepared to wait for any players still involved in club action on the weekend of May 18, any player joining his squad would need to do so before their first match.

Weah is currently on loan at Celtic from Paris Saint-Germain and has four goals in his three starts for the Glasgow giants. However, his matchday squad involvement has mainly been as a substitute.

Both Celtic and PSG would need to agree to Weah's participation in the FIFA tournament as it is not mandatory for them to release their players for it.
