Celtic forward split between Scottish Cup Final or U-20 World Cup

Timothy Weah faces Scottish Cup heartache in the coming weeks.

Celtic striker Timothy Weah has indicated that he’d like to be part of the squad to play in the Scottish Cup Final, despite international commitments, according to the Scottish Sun.

The United States striker is eligible to play for his country in the Under-20s World Cup which takes place this summer in Poland.

America play their first game in the competition on May 24th against Ukraine and will spend 10-days in a training camp prior to their opener.


With the Scottish Cup Final on the 25th, it leaves Weah facing a tough decision.

He told the Scottish Sun: “I guess the club has to discuss it with the national team. I’d love to play in the Cup Final but it’s a World Cup as well. It’s up the club and the national team to decide which one is better.”

The 19-year-old has grown into senior football this season. At Celtic, he has contributed four goals and one assist.

TBR Verdict

Weah would love to be part of a cup final for the first time in senior football but a World Cup is a big pull too.

The American is a star of the future and he is between a rock and hard place at the moment.

Boss Neil Lennon hasn’t started him too frequently so there is a possibility that if he was included in the squad for the final it would only be as a substitute.

He would still be a good player to have on the day, however, given his pace and ability to move past defenders with ease.
