It’s been hard to wipe the smile off Rangers fans faces over the last week or so. And even the threat of Celtic signing “PSG’s deadliest striker” hasn’t been enough to stop them creasing.
The bizarre remark was made by the Evening Times after Celtic signed Timothy Weah on loan from the French giants. They were loosely attributing the claim to Weah’s minutes per goal ratio.
That hasn’t stopped Rangers fans having a laugh about the whole thing on Twitter.

Old Firm loan strikers could prove pivotal
The Gers signed former England international Jermain Defoe prior to this announcement, with fans excited to see how the striker settles in.
Rivals haven’t taken the news all that well. You get the feeling they’re trying to big the Weah deal up to compete with Defoe’s.
Rangers new striker was pictured in Rangers training gear for the first time as he joined the squad in Tenerife.
It means the Scottish Premiership is as finely poised as it has been for years and this window could prove all important.
But who will have the biggest impact in Scotland, Jermain Defoe or Timothy Weah?
