Timothy Weah has confirmed his loan switch from Paris Saint-Germain with a cheeky Instagram post.
The USA international has joined in time to link up with the Hoops in Dubai.
And it is believed Brendan Rodgers stepped in to push the deal over the line.
Timothy Weah has confirmed the deal on his Instagram post with a photo of his PSG locker and a waving emoji signalling his exit.
“He’s 18 years old and he has had talks with Brendan Rodgers and Brendan Rodgers has tried to convince him to come to Celtic,” he revealed on the Transfer Talk podcast.
“Celtic have a link-up with PSG, who Weah pays for, as they sent Odsonne Edouard to Celtic last season. They had him on loan this time last year with a view to buying him.
“PSG certainly saw the benefits of Odsonne Edouard going out to Celtic and in the end they sold him to Celtic.I think there is a tie up between the two clubs.
“It was interesting to note Weah started following a lot of Celtic players on Instagram. Maybe we shouldn’t read too much into that.
“But certainly there have been talks and Celtic need strikers.
“Edouard has not always been firing this summer while Leigh Griffiths is unavailable for an indefinite period and they’ve sold Moussa Dembele.
“They do have issues up front and at times it does look like they lack that depth.”
