TIMO Weah last night tipped Scott Brown and Neil Lennon to help his former club Celtic get through their slump in form and complete 10-In-A-Row this season.

United States internationalist Weah, the son of football great George, spent the second-half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Parkhead and helped the Glasgow club win the Premiership.

The 20-year-old, who is set to feature for French outfit Lille in the Europa League match against the Scottish champions this evening, has been surprised by the Glasgow club’ poor form this term.

However, he feels the influence of captain and midfielder Brown and manager Lennon will ensure Celtic recover in the second half of the 2020/21 campaign.

“From what I know of Celtic from my time there, there are a team of fighters, who will battle through everything,” he said.

“Each team has their ups and downs and this is just a down for Celtic at this moment. But I have full confidence in the coaching staff that they are going to sort things out. I know the guys. They are warriors so I know they are going to get back on track.

“The league race isn't over until the last game. I feel they are going to do it. I'd love to see them do 10-In-A-Row.”

Weah added: “Scott has the ability to do whatever he wants and anything he puts his mind to. When I was at Celtic he was an exceptional captain.

“I enjoyed playing with him and he was the guy who pushed us. He pushed the team on when moments weren’t good. When we had a loss or difficult game then Scott would be the one who’d pick us up.

“When I was at Celtic the coaching staff was amazing to me as a person and as a player. Neil was great to me, I left the club in a bit of a rush because of the World Cup, but overall he was a great coach and we loved him.

“He’s a top motivator, he was a player himself and he knows what it’s like to have difficult moments and to not be on your A Game.

“He was always there for us, this is just a moment where the team is down just now but he is the guy for the job and I know he’s doing it right.”
