Timothy Weah has responded to a ‘fake’ Twitter account placing his move to Celtic in doubt.
The PSG attacker is widely expected to seal a move to the Hoops this month, joining them on a loan until the end of the season.
He’s already taken to Instagram to confirm he’ll leave PSG and comments from Brendan Rodgers confirmed their serious interest in the player.
But so far nothing has been officially confirmed by the Scottish champions – and some fans are getting impatient.
Those fans would have been full blown worried had they seen this tweet earlier, appearing to show Weah tweeting a Celtic fan that he wasn’t allowed to say whether or not he’s signing for the Hoops:

But if that didn’t look fake enough (the account is private, has no verified tick and the English question is answered in French despite Weah being American), the attacker took to Instagram shortly after to confirm he isn’t on Twitter:
You’d have to assume Weah seen the tweet and decided to clarify it wasn’t him.
And that should come as a boost to Celtic fans as they wait for news of his signature.
