BRENDAN Rodgers revealed last night that Timothy Weah has given Lennoxtown his seal of approval after being given a secret guided tour of the facility, writes Stewart Fisher. Although French outfit Amiens are also interested, Celtic are bullish about the highly-rated teenage Paris St Germain striker – the son of former AC Milan legend and current President of Liberia George - agreeing to a loan deal to join his fellow academy graduate Odsonne Edouard. An agreement with the 18-year-old, a full USA international and fluent in both English and French, could be concluded in time for him to join during the winter camp in Dubai.

“We have good relations with PSG, so he came over and he had a great day here,” said Rodgers. “He sent me a lovely message afterwards thanking everyone and saying that he enjoyed it, so we shall see. They clearly want him to go on loan to get experience, and he is a good kid, a great boy with sensible head. There are lots of selling factors for him to come here. The club, the supporters, the intensity, the pressure, the style of football and people that he knows. He’s an international player who can play in a couple of positions at the top of the field, so if it comes off, it can be a great signing for us. We’ll just see how that develops.”

Rodgers even joked that he can follow Ryan Christie in overshadowing his father Charlie. “I said to him: our job with you is to make him [George] Timothy Weah’s dad!”
