The eight-times capped United States worldwide has signed on for the rest of the season and has joined his new team-mates at their training camp in Dubai.

"He has a long career ahead of him but he has those natural attributes in terms of his pace and technique".

"Timothy's a young talent who is full global player".

Vienna knocked the Ibrox club out the Europa League and were looking to bulk up their squad with a star striker for the second half of the season.

However, he struggled to hold down a place with the Bundesliga side and also failed to get regular game time after moving to West Brom 18 months ago.

Celtic have added signed Oliver Burke on loan from West Brom for the rest of this season. They wanted him to go out on loan and saw Celtic as a great possibility. "He'll add competition to the squad".

Philadelphia thanked its benefactor with a 12-play, 60-yard drive on which Foles, the Super Bowl MVP last February, hit six passes.

"I just want to kick on now and get as many games as I can under my belt and show what I'm capable of", Burke said.

"I'm really looking forward to it, and the Valencia game is obviously a massive occasion, which will be great to be a part of".

Celtic are under pressure from fans to make more signings in the January transfer window after rivals Rangers completed loan deals for both Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis.

Celtic are now level at the top of the Scottish Premiership with Rangers but have a game in hand over their fierce rivals.

Despite scoring a goal for every 72 minutes he's been on the pitch this season, Weah has enjoyed far more playing time with the United States Men's National Team, taking in eight appearances and scoring one goal since his debut in March 2018.

The Scotland worldwide told Celtic TV: "I had a phone call with the gaffer and it really influenced me in coming here and joining such a great club".
