Timothy Weah is already showing why he can become a fan favourite at Celtic

Timothy Weah came off the bench to help Celtic to victory over St Johnstone.

Celtic fans could soon have a new hero after Timothy Weah turned in another impressive performance.

In the away game against St Johnstone, it looked like it would be a frustrating game for Celtic, who were being held to a 0-0 draw by the mid-table team.

But Odsonne Edouard’s injury gave Brendan Rodgers the chance to unleash Weah and the youngster was the game changer.

The 18-year-old had only been on the pitch a few minutes before he made a clever run into the channel, controlled the ball and crossed for James Forrest to convert.

 

And then Weah got on the score sheet himself, getting on the end of a square ball to complete a counter-attack and double Celtic’s lead.

The USA international, who is on loan from PSG, now has three goals in five games for the Bhoys.

With pace, skill and the desire to score goals, Weah has all the ingredients to succeed at a high level and he is certainly impressing Celtic fans.

Rodgers will soon have the talented teenager starting, if he keeps his form up, and he is quickly establishing himself as a fan favourite.

Weah has a major role to play this season in the Scottish Cup, the league and the Europa League.

If he can help guide Celtic to a third consecutive domestic treble, then Weah can return to PSG with plenty of confidence.
