Weah relishing Celtic switch

8th January 2019, 10:11 by Andy Schooler

PSG starlet Timothy Weah is "so excited" by his loan move to Scottish champions Celtic.

The Bhoys signed the 18-year-old on a six-month deal from Paris Saint-Germain on Monday and he will now fly out to the club's winter training camp in Dubai.

However, Weah is already looking forward to being involved in the matchday squad, in particular running out at Parkhead.

"It's a fantastic honour to sign for such a historic club and I'm really looking forward to this opportunity," the USA international told Celtic's official website.

"I'm also delighted to be working with such a great coach (Brendan Rodgers) and great team-mates, and I'm looking forward so much to be playing in front of some of the best and most passionate fans on the planet.

"I'm so happy and so excited."

Weah's first chance to wear the famous green and white hoops will come against Airdrieonians in the Scottish Cup on January 19 – the first of four home games which come before the end of the month.

Meanwhile, one player who could be heading out of Parkhead is Lewis Morgan.

According to the Daily Record, Hibs want Morgan to help cover winger Martin Boyle's absence. He was injured on international duty for Australia and could miss the rest of the season.

Morgan is also attracting interest from Sunderland, who are managed by his former St Mirren boss Jack Ross.
