    Rodgers on signing Weah:
    “Timothy’s a young talent who is a full international player,” said Rodgers. “He has a long career ahead of him but he has those natural attributes in terms of his pace and technique. He’s hungry too.
    “He’s been in the PSG squad and featured for them in pre-season. With the quality of players they have it’s difficult for him to get in and get any game-time. They wanted him to go out on loan and saw Celtic as a great possibility.
    “He has really good qualities technically, and tactically is always improving his game. Physically he’s very good, very fast and is a strong player. He’ll add competition to the squad.”

    Celtic's next game is a Scottish FA Cup match on the 19th against a third-division team. I'd be surprised if we don't see Weah in that.

    There are a lot of agencies that get West African kids to eastern Europe. Many of them are extremely exploitative.

    I’m leaving this one to @bungadiri. :) But I do like your idea: Tim at Celtic by Weah of PSG.

    After reconsidering including Timothy McWeah in my title when I reread it, all I could come up with was "Spread love, it's the Brooklyn Weah: Tim at the Unglamorous PSG of Scotland."

    Don't be too sure. Valencia have been having a very rough season this year, on top of a decade of disappointment and chaos, and they were flirting with the relegation spots for most of October-December.

    Things have stabilized a bit since, and a Cup run is always a great boost to an under-performing team, but they have a very nasty set of fixtures coming up between now and the first leg. Out of five games, the next three are all relegation 6-pointers, followed by Barca away and then another 6-pointer the weekend before they travel to Glasgow for the first game. They have a good defence, but they're not scoring, as the GD shows: Goals For 16; Goals Against 16.

    Even if the first leg finishes 0-0, I fancy Celtic to nick a goal on the counter at the Mestella and then carve Valencia open as they chase the game. So much so that I'm off to Paddy Power to check the odds they're offering. :D

    the Weah signing has exploded in the social media-sphere. This is one of many on Twitter and they're popping up elsewhere as well (can't tell you how disorienting it is to search for Celtic stuff without the goal of trolling some poor Glaswegian on followfollow... ah well, I guess we all have to grow...)
