Timothy Weah has confirmed his time as a Celtic player has come to an end after an international call-up.

The forward’s loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain was due to expire at the end of the season but this has now been cut short after he was called up by the United States for the Under-20 World Cup.

The US’s first game in the tournament, which will take place in Poland, will be on 24 May – the day before Celtic face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final.

In a lengthy post to his Instagram account, Weah thanked Celtic’s fans for their support during his time in Glasgow and revealed that Neil Lennon had made the decision for him to go home immediately, meaning he will miss this weekend’s Old Firm.

‘I will be joining my National team to participate in the U20 World Cup in Poland,’ he explained.

‘With this decision, the gaffer told me that it is in the best interest of the team that I collect my things and go home rather than be apart of the game on Sunday so I’ll be on my way.’

Weah has scored four times in his 16 appearances for Celtic. His appearances have been limited, however, since Lennon returned to the club to replace Brendan Rodgers.
