Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has tipped Timothy Weah to be a huge success at Celtic.
Weah has joined the Hoops on a six-month loan deal, making the switch from the Ligue 1 giants.
Great things are being predicted of the USA striker, with Celtic’s title hopes set to be enhanced by his arrival.
Neymar told the Daily Record that it is the perfect move for the 18-year-old, who he expects to become one of the best in the business eventually:
It is a very exciting move for him from what I have seen of his talent he has everything to go and be one of the top attacking players in Europe.
It is a good move for him, a good move for Celtic as they are getting such a big talent, and also a good move for PSG because he has a chance to get experience and games and come back to us a more complete player.
He did have options – but he chose the right one.
Celtic are a big club, in their league they attack a lot and score a lot of goals, and also they are still in Europe – so they offer him much.
Weah has already won eight caps for the USA, despite his tender years, scoring once to date.
He is yet to make his Celtic debut, but that could come at home to Airdrieonians in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Saturday.
