Right now it’s all hypothetical but If Celtic manage to get past Aberdeen this weekend in the Scottish cup semi final then the club would face a battle to keep a hold of their loan star Timo Weah for perhaps his final game in the hoops.

Weah has only started three times for Celtic and just once under Neil Lennon since his appointment as interim manager so this may not matter if the Irishman opts not to utilise the PSG youngster.

However, if Neil Lennon deems the midfielder worthy of game time between now and the end of the season then Celtic would face a similar battle to the Patrick Roberts situation when the bhoys were going for their first treble.

Weah, like Roberts looks set to be called up to his country at youth level for the World Cup and that would mean he would have to leave Celtic early and have a premature ending to his Parkhead stay if the club get t the final and he has to leave for a US training camp.

It’s all ifs and buts at the moment with so many things undecided but it’s a bridge Celtic will have to cross when they get to it if they’re successful against Aberdeen and make the final.

There has been no indication if Celtic are looking to keep the American on past the summer in a longer term loan deal as of yet.
