Jeremy Toljan made a positive impact on his Celtic debut in their 2-0 win over St Johnstone.

The German was a half-time sub for Mikael Lustig and looked very impressive during his 45 minute stint.

However his appearance may go unnoticed due to Timothy Weah’s exceptional super sub cameo.


The American teenager burst off the bench to create the opening goal for James Forrest. In a game which looked like Celtic weren’t going to get the breakthrough, Weah provided inspiration in spades.

He then finished off a superb counter attack to seal the 2-0 win for Celtic and restore their six point lead in the league.


Toljan, however, deserves credit for his first half of football for the club.

The right back looks tidy on the ball, and unafraid to bomb forward and join in the attacks.

He also has a bit of pace about him, and used it well to defend any St. Johnstone counter attack.

Toljan defended competently too, cutting out any sniff of an attack from the home team down his side.

A bright future

The German right back’s deal at Celtic is only until the end of the season. However, if he can build on his positive performance yesterday, many will want him to stay.

A right back was atop the list of priorities for Celtic fans heading into the transfer window.

Although they had to wait until the final hours to get their man, he looks to be a good one.
