Brendan Rodgers hints at extended Timothy Weah stay

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that on-loan forward Timothy Weah could remain with the club beyond the end of the season.

The United States international joined the Bhoys on loan from Paris Saint-Germain during last month’s transfer window and he has impressed during his short time in Glasgow, scoring three goals in six appearances to date.

Rodgers has certainly been pleased by the teenager’s performances since his arrival at Parkhead and he has hinted he would be interested in extending the loan beyond the end of the season, although he knows that decision will ultimately be made by PSG.

“He’s 18, so depending on how that goes, there’s maybe a possibility of extending that but I don’t like to talk too much, it’s a wee bit disrespectful to the team we bring them from,” Rodgers told the Daily Record.

“The relationship is good with PSG through Odsonne Edouard and some of the other players that we have spoken about to them, so let’s see how it goes and then we’ll review it with the club and him and his family at the end of it all.

“I am sure they will take him back next pre-season and have another look and they will decide where his next stage is if it’s not there.”

Despite his age, Weah has already won three major titles during his club career with PSG and he could add another two this term, as Celtic sit six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership standings and are still involved in the Scottish Cup.

Indeed, the Bhoys are going for an eighth-successive league championship this season and they are priced at 1.14 to achieve that feat.
