Former Celtic attacker Timo Weah has shone on the world stage and scored the biggest goal of his career.

The 22-year-old netted on his World Cup debut for the USA against Wales on Monday night.

Weah, who enjoyed six productive months at Celtic Park in early 2019, leapt on to a Christian Pulisic pass and slotted into the net midway through the first-half.

With Cameron Carter-Vickers starting the match on the bench, it gave Celtic fans something to talk about in the day’s final game.

Weah’s goal, and generally lively performance, also served as a pertinent reminder of what transfer windows used to be like before Ange Postecoglou arrived in Glasgow.

The club would regularly enter the January transfer window looking for short-term loans, with Weah one such signing under Brendan Rodgers.

Thankfully those days are a thing of the past. We’re now totally organised under Postecoglou, with the Aussie recently revealing that the bulk of his work for this January has already been done.

So all good, all round. Celtic are in a better place in the window and Weah is shining on the biggest of stages.
