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

Liberian President Weah’s son joins Celtic on loan from PSG

Vakoun Issouf Bayo has become the Celtic manager's latest recruit after joining loan signings Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah in Dubai for the Scottish champions' winter training camp. It pushes me to be a better me, a better athlete, a better player.

Weah, the son of legend George Weah, has largely been deployed as a wide player with both PSG and the US national team but, under Brendan Rodgers, the forward is expecting to be played centrally.

"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", he said.

"He's looking to play me as a nine and I can't wait".

'I am in love with Celtic so I am really happy, ' he told BBC Scotland. I'm so excited to be here. "It was a great feeling getting to know a new team and new coaching staff".

The highly-rated 18-year-old has scored two goals in six first-team appearances for PSG, while he has also been capped eight times by the United States.

"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".

The 18-year-old forward, already capped by United States, can not wait to get started, with his potential debut coming at home to Airdrieonians in the Scottish Cup on January 19.

"It's great to see him again and it's great seeing how he has progressed and seeing his development at the club and, hopefully, I can do the same".

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has talked up the possibility of yet more transfer activity this month.

"The market is very hard for Scotland because the players are always moving, you look at the changes in our squad that happened particularly over the summer, it's a new squad, lots of new players".
