It looks like both Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah are enjoying their introduction to life as a Celt. And why wouldn’t they? Both players have made an immediate impact with goals. Both players seem to have falling in love already playing in front of a Celtic Park crowd.
Weah is featured in today’s official matchday programme. While he may be loving his short time in Glasgow he has had to get used to a few things in training.
“It’s a bit more physical here and at training, we go all-in,” “The style of play is really fast and really physical. That’s the difference I’ve noticed is the physicality.
The young star recognises improving the physical side of his game will benefit him greatly in the future.
“It’ll help me in my career because I know, whatever league I play in, I don’t think it’ll be as physically tough as the Scottish league. As an 18-year-old it’s good to get that experience and get used to dealing with that feeling of guys challenging you hard and learning how to handle that and play with that challenge.”
Celtic fans have already fallen for the PSG star too. A lot of fans have been singing the praises not only of his goals but his running in behind defenders too. His fellow loanee Burke, done exceptionally in front of goal in the last game against St. Mirren, although Celtic fans are eager to see what Weah can do in front of goals over ninety minutes.
Maybe he will get that game time today. Celtic take on Hamilton at 3 pm at Paradise and we will be back with all the pre and post-match reaction.
