Timo Weah netted Celtic's second goal against St Johnstone at Perth but escaped sanction for his part in the celebrations afterwards. The American striker, on-loan from PSG until the end of the season, jumped into the Celtic support when he scored, an action that had resulted in a booking for his team-mate James Forrest just minutes earlier for doing thee same thing.

“The referee told me that he would have given me a yellow card but the fans didn’t fall over and told me to be careful the next time," smiled Weah.

“For me, the fans come all this way to support us and I feel the least I can do is go and celebrate the win with them. I noticed James had been booked for doing the same thing and I thought he was going to book me too but that’s life.

“I bet James is wondering why I didn’t get booked. It’s weird, because I thought the ref was coming over to give me a card but he said the fans didn’t fall over so I got away with it.

“But I have to say that the goal and celebration would have been worth a booking, 100%." Weah's goal was his third in five games since his arrival at the beginning of the month and teenager has attributed his alacrity at settling to is new team-mates. The striker also insisted that his assist for Forrest meant more to him that his own goal.

"It's an incredible feeling to come into a hard game and score," he said.

"But the assist was more important for me.

"it's my first of the season and to get it at such an important time was amazing.

"To see the joy on Jamesie's face was incredible and the celebration with the fans topped it off.

"I have settled in really well because of the team-mates I have around me.

"There are no egos.

"I have gelled with the guys and the fans, and everyone has accepted me.

"The coaching staff tell me things I need to develop but it's amazing to have this kind of support.

"I don't know much about Celtic but I am getting there.

"It's just a great feeling to be accepted in this way by everyone.

"I have embraced the club, the atmosphere and I have a lot of love for the guys.

"They are my brothers now and I am so happy to get the experience with such an amazing club.

"To be out there in every game with this group of players...I couldn't ask for any more."
