Celtic face Rangers on Sunday as they look to open a 13-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

One player hoping to make an impact in his first Old Firm derby is Tim Weah, who joined the Hoops on loan in January.

The 19-year-old hit the ground running with a goal on his debut, and has gone on to score three goals in 12 appearances.

“It’s going very well at Celtic,” Weah said on Friday.

“The players and the coach accepted me very quickly.

“The integration was easy, because I speak English although I continue to speak French with Odsonne Edouard, Dedryck Boyata and Olivier Ntcham.

“The people are really very nice. It’s easy for me there. I live incredible things through football right now.”

Weah, the son of 1995 Ballon d’Or winner George, has also named one difference with his parent club as the atmosphere at Celtic Park.

He continued: “There is an amazing atmosphere at the stadium. In Paris it’s similar, but there’s something different at Celtic Park, which is an old stadium.

“I have never seen this. The team are playing well. I’m happy to be there, it’s a very good choice.”

Weah is understandably compared to his father regularly in France, but the forward is happy that Celtic fans are unfazed by the famous connection.

He added: “In Glasgow, it’s not the same with my father. I am known as Tim Weah, the player. My dad did not play here, so people do not talk about that much.

“They know that my father was a great player, that he did great things, but they are just happy that I’m here.

“I am proud of my father of course, but I want people to say ‘Tim Weah is a great player’ on its own.”

Weah is keen to use his spell in Scotland to boost his chances of starting for PSG, but his exit in January has left him unhappy.

He added: “At PSG, I was disappointed with the way the first half of the season went for me because I was not told anything after the summer – it was as if I had never played with the team.”
