Celtic’s recent match against St Johnstone was a struggle until the emergence of Timothy Weah.

The second-half substitute set the up the first goal and scored the second in a vital 2-0 win.

The victory kept the Hoops clear at the top of the league, and Weah deserves plenty of credit for that.

His performance was so good that it can be argued that he deserves to start the Hoops’ next game, at home against Hibernian on Wednesday night.

With the injury list Celtic currently have, it seems highly likely that the recent arrival from PSG will be given a start.

It will be intriguing to see where Weah plays should he start.

Up-front would seem to be the most logical choice, as his pace can cause the opposition all kinds of problems.

He might not be a natural striker, but Celtic don’t have any other choices at the moment, due to injuries.

Weah has scored three goals in his five appearances for the Hoops so far, which is a record a striker would be proud of.

 

Weah has certainly become a fan favourite in his short-time at the club so far.

He only joined the Hoops on loan until the end of the season.

If there is any possible way Celtic can get the loan deal extended they have to pursue that option.

It would do the player good to get regular football for 18 months rather than sit on PSG’s bench.
