Oliver Burke: I can kick on at Celtic under Brendan Rodgers

Oliver Burke: I can kick on at Celtic under Brendan Rodgers

Celtic still sit top of the Scottish Premiership with a game in hand over Steven Gerrard's side.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Timothy Weah has completed a six-month loan move to Celtic and some of the big names at PSG have wished him well for his trip to Scotland.

"It's amusing", he said, "as the day I had the visit, Odsonne dm'ed me on Instagram and said, 'Hey bro, are you coming?' I was like, 'Yeah, I had a meeting with the manager and I'm really loving the team, I'm really loving the club so I'm going to come.' He saw me today in the locker room and he was laughing and joking". Physically he's very good, very fast and is a strong player. Other teams have invested well and improved. Obviously, there is a bit more pressure on us with the league being tight, but we'll just work as we always do and, hopefully, we get the results that we need.

The Scottish Premiership is now on a winter break and Celtic are spending the week in Dubai to recuperate ahead of the second half of the season.

However, when asked about the Ibrox club's transfer activity, he said he was "not one for looking over the fence" and was focused on trying "to look after my own garden".

We feel like that maybe he misunderstood or it was handled wrong or maybe we said the wrong thing but we want him to host. Ellen agreed, and Hart continued: "Another day goes by. this fire's angry, it's all over the place", he said.

"He indicated he would like to get more experience in although it's a balancing act, isn't it, between bringing in young players he can develop and bringing in experienced players that know what it takes to win a championship".

To that end, as well as signing players, there have been suggestions of departures, with Dedryck Boyata and Scott Brown out of contract in the summer.

"Timothy's a young talent who is a full global player", Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said on the club's website as Weah joined his new team mates at a Dubai training camp.

Rodgers said the 23-year-old has "clearly got potential" but that the 12 months since he signed from Dundee have "been a steep learning curve". With the quality of players they have, it's hard for him to get in and get any game-time.
