Celtic’s upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen promises to be a tight affair.

The four matches between the teams so far this season have been close games, with Celtic winning by one goal in three of them and the other being a draw.

Therefore, there is a good chance that the game could go to extra time. Should that happen, Celtic have a player available who could turn the game in their favour should it go the distance. That player is Timothy Weah.

No doubt some fans would like to see start the game for the Hoops. There is no doubt that argument is merited. However, he has only started three games for the Hoops since January.

Potential match-winning move

Therefore, it is more likely that Weah will start on the bench. However, that could turn out to be a match-winning move.


Weah is more than capable of turning a game on its head from the bench. The best example of this is the 2-0 win over St Johnstone from February.

Weah came on and devastated St Johnstone with his pace. He set up the opening goal for James Forrest, and scored the second to give the Hoops the three points.

A similar situation could well arise this Sunday. Should that be the case, Weah could be the man to help the Hoops reach the Scottish Cup Final.
