Celtic Player DM'd PSG Star Asking Him To Come To Scotland

Timothy Weah has revealed that he spoke to a former Paris Saint-Germain player ahead of his move to Celtic.

The Scottish club signed the 18-year-old forward on a six-month loan deal this month, but the United States international received a DM from a Celtic player.

"Yes [I had the opportunity to speak with Odsonne Édouard before the move to Celtic]," he told Celtic TV.

"It's funny because the day I had the visit, he DM'ed me on Instagram and he was like, 'So bro, are you coming, are you coming?'

"I'm like, 'Yeah, I had a meeting with the gaffer and I'm really loving the team and really loving the club and I'm going to come here.'

"He saw me today in the locker room, we were joking, laughing and catching up.

"It's great to see him again and it's great seeing how he has progressed and seeing his development at the club and, hopefully, I can do the same."

Édouard came through the PSG youth academy, but failed to make a senior appearance for the club.

Last year, the Scottish Premiership side signed the 20-year-old striker on a four-year deal.

Weah has said that he has no regrets leaving the club, admitting that he is in "love with Celtic."

"It is a wonderful moment for me, and such a blessing with such a great coach like Brendan Rodgers to lead me in the right direction," he told BBC Scotland (via BBC Sport).

"He and rest of the coaching staff are going to build me and form me into a really good player, and my teammates are going to help me mature."

Will Celtic win the Scottish Premiership title this season?
