Weah has been told exactly were he is going to play under Brendan Rodgers over the rest of the campaign. Ultimately he is a Celtic player and the club are paying him a lot of money.

The 21-year-old, who has two caps for the Ivory Coast, has scored 22 goals in 32 games this season after moving to Slovakia in March after spending two years playing in Tunisia with Étoile du Sahel. I'm so excited to be here.

He said he would hold talks with the 28-year-old when he returns to Glasgow at the weekend, pointing out that the player was "not on holiday".
