Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is elated to be working with new January recruit Timothy Weah who joined the club on loan from Paris-Saint Germain.

Weah, 18, is an exciting young talent and Rodgers hopes the striker can improve his game under his tutelage.

Rodgers told the Evening Times: “He’s a young talent who is a full international player and has a long career ahead of him, but his natural attributes are his pace and his technique and he’s hungry.

“He’s been in the PSG squad and featured for them in pre-season and, obviously, with the quality of players they have, it’s difficult for him to get in and get game time.

Brendan Rodgers praised the "incredible" Jamie Vardy after he scored his 100th Leicester City goal in their 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday.

“He’ll see Celtic as a great possibility and he comes in and adds to the players that are here and challenge, whilst getting the experience of playing for a really big club and having that pressure to win.

“So he has real good qualities technically, tactically, and he’s improving his game. Physically, he’s very good, fast and strong and he’ll add competition to the squad.”
