    I see. Probably the right decision then.

    The 19-year-old’s loan from Paris Saint-Germain was cut short yesterday afternoon, with the striker laying the blame for his premature exit at Neil Lennon as he left the club. Weah used social media platform Instagram to say: “I will be joining my national team to participate in the U20 World Cup in Poland. With this decision, the gaffer told me it is in the best interests of the team that I collect my things and go home rather than be a part of the game on Sunday so I’ll be on my way.”

    It is understood, however, that the player was offered the opportunity to play for Celtic in Scottish Cup final at Hampden on 25 May and then rejoin his international colleagues in Poland for the remainder of their World Cup campaign.

    The USA had invited Weah to head to a training camp after this weekend’s game against Rangers at Ibrox to start preparations for the World Cup but Tab Ramos, the under-20 manager, was prepared to allow Weah to then return to Lennoxtown the week before the cup final.

    The understanding was that Weah would then have ample time with his Celtic colleagues to prepare for the club’s bid to secure a historic treble treble.

    The compromise agreed with the club and the USA coaching staff was that Weah would miss their opening game against Ukraine but would return to Poland immediately after the Hampden game against Hearts.

    That would have given Weah the remainder of the World Cup campaign with America’s next games on Monday 27 May against Nigeria and Qatar on Thursday 30 May.

    It was Weah himself who refused to return to Glasgow for the final game of the season. Caretaker Celtic manager Lennon interpreted that decision as a lack of commitment from the player and felt it best for all parties that he leave the squad.

    I’m not a fan of the whole “don’t celebrate against former teams” thing unless you were at the club for years.. but I have to say I appreciated it coming from him.

    Never lit it up here, but he tried. Think didn't help we had about a thousand wide players at the time and Burke kept getting game time as well. Too many right wingers meant time was limited, but there is a tidy player in there and a very well spoken young lad.

    Pretty much what I’m getting at mate.

    He never did too much right either. Made no impression here as a player, when the opportunity came to cut short his time here he took it. Gives an interview and Celtic fans are fawning over him again

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that. Same with big Erik, towed a caravan around the 18 year box for his last season here, gives it ‘Hail Hail’ on twitter and folk are rewriting history and demanding him back

    I'd never begrudge someone wanting to play for their country. Especially the size of America.
