Weah scores in first start since February


Timothy Weah made the most of his first league start for Celtic since February.

The U.S. Men’s National Team forward and PSG loanee bagged the winning goal in Celtic’s 2-0 victory at St Mirren.

Weah got on the end of Mikael Lustig’s pass and headed in off the crossbar for his third league goal of the season. It would be Weah’s only effort on goal out of his five in total but it put Celtic in front after 15 minutes.

The visitors would ice the win the 85th minute as Ryan Christie extended Celtic’s lead at the top of the table to 13 points.

For Weah, his goal should give him positive confidence with a full month remaining in the domestic season.

Celtic next host Livingston on April 6th before finding out their next couple matches against the remaining top-six sides in the SPFL.


    • He can only score when he’s on the field.
      Tim’s averaging a goal every 94 minutes vs Scottish competition since he arrived at Celtic.
      That’s pretty darn good, and would easily translate to way more than 12 goals over the course of an SPL season if he featured regularly.

      • Transfermarkt says 112 min/g but same diff. But you are right, you go by strike rate. If an underused player gets 3 goals in 10 appearances totalling 330 minutes, that’s basically 4 games of full time. That suggests promise. That also suggests he was not “rusty” or whatever the excuse is for leaving him at U23, that Celtic finally puts him back out there to start and whamo goal.
