The Celtic supporters have been constantly whispering their excitement about the potential partnership between Odsonne Edouard and Timothy Weah.

Weah of course bagged his first Celtic goal just moments into his debut against Airdrie. It’s left everyone desperate to see more of him in particular, with his pace a promising factor.

Edouard, on the other hand, already has 14 goals to his name this season. Everyone knows he brings fantastic close-control and dribbling ability.

But the idea of the two of them together has certainly intrigued the Hoops faithful. And speaking to the Evening Times, Weah has confirmed that he can’t wait to be on the pitch with his former PSG teammate.

“I know Odsonne really well because we played a full season together and became very good friends. I am so excited to play here at Celtic with him.

“We have a really strong chemistry. We share so much of the same passions and we really get on with one another on and off the field You will see that when we get the chance to play together.

“I can’t wait to show the fans what we can do together. It’s going to be a very exciting time for me.”

A partnership to fear all around the country

If you’re an opposition defender reading Weah’s words, you’re likely to have just had a huge gulp in your throat.

If Weah’s pace is as quick as we’re all made to believe, then his partnership with Edouard could be something to behold. Most Premiership defences can barely even handle Edouard on his own, nevermind with Weah up there.

But the fact they’re already familiar with each other’s games is a huge boost for Celtic. The duo spent time together in the youth ranks at PSG, but Weah was always the more highly-rated one.

There seems to be some real chemistry between the pair, and a genuine friendship too. Edouard was constantly texting Weah during his tour of Lennoxtown, clearly eager for his pal to seal the deal.

Of course, any partnership is likely to be with one of the two playing down the left. Brendan Rodgers only plays with one striker unless worse comes to worst. He likely won’t change that for Weah and Edouard.

Still. This is a partnership that can easily flourish with Weah or Edouard down the left. And we all can’t wait to see it happen.
