The Celtic fans were in fine form as they reacted to the announcement of Timothy Weah’s Celtic loan agreement.
The PSG kid will be at Parkhead for the next six months. It’s hoped by many that his short-term impact will help fire Celtic to a treble-treble, or at least fend off the Premiership challenge presented by Rangers.
Weah’s signing marks Celtic’s second deal of the transfer window. Oliver Burke came in last week, with many fans underwhelmed by the loan signing of the West Brom man.
And whilst a section of Hoops fans were still frustrated at another loan deal, there was some excitement and top-banter from the supporters in reaction to the deal.
Here, we take a look at some of the top Twitter reaction to the signing:

Important to look past the loan deal
Whilst fan excitement is clearly on the rise after the completion of this deal, the loan aspect still rankles with some.
But it’s important to understand that Weah is here to help Celtic reestablish domestic dominance in the short-term. He’s a big talent with a massive future ahead of him, and could do real damage in Scotland under Brendan Rodgers.
He’s even managed to get on the scoresheet for PSG in the past. Weah has already bagged two goals for the French outfit, and has both goals in three appearances this season. Weah is also a massive talent for the USA national team as well, who’ve capped him on six occasions despite being just 18 years of age.
It’s a deal that helps with the striker crisis Celtic have been worried about for a while now. With Vakoun Issouf Bayo also closing in on a Celtic deal, finally the club are going to have some real cover up top.
Whilst many will argue that it’s difficult to back six-month loan agreements, the club can’t afford to look much further than this season. It’s absolutely imperative they scoop the league once again, and another treble would be massive for the fans.
Weah can provide some real help towards those goals. If Celtic were to win the treble thanks to help from Weah and Burke, nobody will be questioning the deals.
It’s down to both, however, to start making a serious impact immediately.
