Celtic fans might have been slightly concerned when two of their main signings in the January transfer window – Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah – were brought to the club on short term loan-deals, until the end of the season.

However, both players have excelled so far in their brief time at the club.

Burke scored a double in the 4-0 win over St Mirren and Weah also scored in the win, to make it two goals in two games.

The pair have added a new attacking dimension to a Celtic side which has looked toothless at times.

The injury enforced absences of Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths have caused a problem but the new duo seem to have solved this.

Demand will surely grow from the Celtic support that the players are brought back to Celtic Park next season.

Can Celtic keep Burke and Weah beyond their loan deals?

That could prove to be difficult however, particularly when it comes to Burke. His parent club West Brom have stated that he will return to them next season.

West Brom manager Darren Moore has claimed that there is little to no chance of the move being made into a long-term deal.

However, PSG could be more lenient when it comes to the future of Weah. The young American is low down on the pecking order when it comes to strikers at the French champions.

But for now fans should just enjoy the chance to see these two players at Celtic Park.
