Timothy Weah has revealed his pride at scoring Celtic’s first goal at St Mirren last night.
The Hoops overcame the Buddies 2-0 in another unconvincing performance in Paisley. It kept Celtic 13 points clear at the top and just two wins from the Premiership title.
One of the highlights of the night, however, was certainly Weah’s performance. Starting on the left flank, he showed terrific directness and footwork to look lively all night. It was his header that opened the scoring too, saving us from yet another night of nerves.
And, in typical Weah fashion, he spoke of his pride at the performance on his Instagram page.
“Happy to be back on the pitch. Slowly getting my rhythm back. Super proud of the Bhoys tonight, proud to get another and also receive man of the match.”
Has the attitude
Yet again, Weah’s attitude steals the show just as much as his performance. It’s difficult to remember such an infectious young character being involved at Parkhead.
Despite the fact he only had two starts before last night, you would never know it. A scroll through his Instagram page shows you just how much he’s enjoying life at Parkhead despite his lack of game-time.
The latter could hopefully now be about to change. Weah was sublime against St Mirren and has more than earned another shot this Saturday against Livingston. Compare his performance to the likes of Scott Sinclair’s down the left, and it’s clear to see that Weah looks more capable of making an impact.
Celtic have another six domestic league games left and hopefully two Scottish Cup ties also. There’s still more than enough time for Weah to make the impact he was brought in for. But it’s equally as important that Neil Lennon plays his part and shows some faith in him.
The majority of the time he plays for the Hoops, he shows up well. Why it’s taken so long for him to receive another start is mind-boggling. Hopefully, however, that’s all about to change.
