FORMER Celtic loan star Timothy Weah has vetoed any remote chances of another spell at the champions following a £9million move to Lille from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 19-year-old American forward has agreed a five-year deal with the ambitious outfit, but could still play in the east end of Glasgow in the new season.

Weah made only six appearances for the French champions before his temporary transfer to the Hoops in January.

He claimed four goals in 17 outings – 13 as a substitute – but his spell in Glasgow ended abruptly when Neil Lennon sent him packing before the game at Ibrox on May 12 after a row over the player’s availability for the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts just under a fortnight later.

The Irishman stepped into a potential club v country confrontation with the USA scheduled to play in the World Cup Under-20s Finals in Poland around the same time as the grand finale at Hampden.

Weah might still get the chance to play at Parkhead next season – Lille have qualified for the Champions League after finishing runners-up to PSG.
