Timothy Weah believes that the competition for places at Paris Saint-Germain and Celtic will make him a better player in the long run.

The USA international joined the Scottish champions earlier this month and has made an instant impression at Parkhead with two goals in two games.

Both of those strikes have come from the bench, but the young striker insists that his background at Parc des Princes and training with some of the best players around will only benefit his progression.

“Obviously at PSG they have the best players in the world,” he told the Press Association.

“Being with that group has really made me strong. I have watched the ins and outs of everyone, Neymar and Mbappe and all those guys in training and I really feel that it has moulded me into a stronger person and a fighter and it made me a lot hungrier than before.

“I don’t see it as being much different [at Celtic], we are human beings and we are all fighting for the spot and everyone has that hunger and once you have that hunger you can do what you need to do.

“The competition here is great, Sinky [Scott Sinclair] and James Forrest are top-class players and getting the chance to compete with them and train with them every day is going to make me a better player.”

Celtic now face a league double-header against St Johnstone.
