Many Celtic fans have been discussing a video involving Timothy Weah that recently emerged on social media.

Weah joined Celtic on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2019. He stayed at Parkhead until May 2019, when his loan stint ended. PSG then sold the American to Lille the following summer (as per Transfermarkt).
Some other Celtic fans also had a lot of things to say about Weah’s comments regarding the Hoops.

These Celtic fans clearly have a liking for Weah and his comments. A couple of fans would be happy to see him return to the club in the future.
During his time at Parkhead, Weah had made 17 appearances in all competitions for the Bhoys. He had directly contributed to five goals, scoring four times (as per Transfermarkt).
A centre-forward by trade, Weah can also play on the left or on the right wing. His versatility can add depth in multiple areas and because of that, it is understandable why Celtic fans would be happy to have the 20-year-old back at Parkhead.
