Weah officially put pen-to-paper on a six-month loan deal with the Scottish champions yesterday, and joined-up with his new team-mates at their warm-weather training camp in Dubai.
For an 18-year-old forward learning his trade in Paris, the idea of moving to the Scottish Premiership might seems slightly daunting, but it turns out Weah was given some pretty priceless advice – from one of the modern game’s most decorated players.
Weah trained alongside Barcelona hero Alves in the French capital, and said via the Sun: “I didn’t go to him [Neymar] and speak to him one-on-one about coming to Celtic but I kinda spoke to other team-mates like Thomas Meunier and Dani Alves.
“They said it’s good to go out and get experience and they felt Celtic was the best club because you’re getting that. It’s all in the package — great team, great supporters, great stadium, great coaching staff, so it’s a great place to come and learn.”
The USA international sounds champing at the bit to get started, but he’ll have to wait a while before making his full debut for Brendan Rodgers’ side, with Celtic’s next competitive match not until January 19 in the Scottish Cup against Airdrie.
But do you think the teenager will be an undoubted success in Scottish football?
