Timothy Tim Timo Weah becomes an international star or not is one thing, but he’s quickly proving rather adept for the Scottish Premiership.
On loan from Paris Saint-Germain and tipped by none other than Neymar for a monster half-season, Weah came off the bench to inspire Celtic’s 2-0 win at St. Johnstone with a goal and an assist on Sunday.
Weah, 18, subbed into a scoreless match with 16 minutes to play, and produced the result with an assist and then a goal. Celtic is six points clear of Rangers atop the table. The next Old Firm Derby isn’t until March 31 at Celtic Park.
The American attacker now has three goals and an assist in five appearances for Celtic, who is the best team in the Scottish Premiership has won those matches by a combined score of 14-0. And, notably, the league is somewhere between the Eredivisie and MLS in quality.
So there’s plenty of proving ground left for Weah. But so far, so great.
And remember: He has two goals in four senior appearances for PSG, plus a goal in eight caps for the #USMNT.
