The 18-year-old forward, fresh from completing a loan switch from Paris Saint-Germain, enjoyed a dream start to his spell at Parkhead on Saturday.

He scored on his debut for Alex Ferguson's team in a 4-0 win over Wigan in September 2012.

"It's a really good vibe", Weah told the BBC. I am hungry and I am fit and I am here to play as many games as I can and score as many goals as I can.

"I have been so impressed with everything". "The boys have made me feel really at home and it's been easy to settle in".

Airdrieonians sit two divisions below Celtic in the Scottish pyramid, so Brendan Rodgers will know that many judges are expecting his side to ease into the next round of the competition.

So, it's possible that the Celtic manager has retained his interest and wants to take him to Celtic Park.

The stats behind Mohamed Salah's 50 Premier League goals
Salah now has 50 goals in his 72 Premier League appearances and is the current top scorer in the league with 16. It's Liverpool's second-longest home unbeaten run in league play in club history.

The 27-year-old is now in the MLS with Vancouver Whitecaps, having spent plenty of time in Germany during his career.

Both Celtic and Rangers are reported to be interested in signing former Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell.

"I already know his qualities and he knows mine".

"Yesterday we hit six or seven kilometres in the training session and really pushed them because we wanted to get game distance into them over yesterday and today and we have managed to do that".

"I think you will see a lot more intensity, a lot more goal and energy about our performance on Wednesday because we will have two really light days now going into that". We have always rooted for each other and it's pretty fantastic that we are both here playing for Celtic.

"We will come off them now and hopefully be full of energy, intensity and aggression come Wednesday because that is how I like to play". "It's going to be a very exciting time for me".
