Celtic supporters have been left stunned by footage from one of their reported summer transfer targets this week.
Wolfsberger AC were back in action in the Austrian Bundesliga at the weekend following a near-three month absence and Shon Weissman, who has been linked with a move to Parkhead, scored an outrageous bicycle kick as his side went on to record a victory.
The clip was posted to Twitter by one fan account, and can be viewed below.

According to the reliable Mike McGrath at the Telegraph, the Scottish champions will consider a move for the 24-year-old should they lose prolific talisman Odsonne Eduoard this summer.
Going by the goal scored at the weekend, many in Glasgow are drooling over the prospect of landing him…

If you think for one minute, one wee clip like this is going to make me want him at Celtic then you are absolutely correct.

Haha – was thinking he same, mate. That and the fact that he scores goals for fun. Get Bayo off out on loan and bring this guy in – gonna need 4 strikers for next season

Weissman’s sublime finish took his tally for the 19/20 campaign to 30 goals from 31 appearances, via Transfermarkt, which includes a pair of goals against AS Roma and Borussia Monchengladbach in the Europa League group stage.
However, some are unconvinced by the footage as they have likened the situation to that of Vakoun Bayo, who joined Celtic in January 2019 and Marian Shved, who joined in the same transfer window.
Both young players are said to have similar clips uploaded on the internet that excited fans prior to their arrival. Yet neither have cemented their name down amongst Neil Lennon’s first-team.
Probably be another shved im not believing clips like this 🤣 https://t.co/H6wdQAzTXn

Mind when Bayo looked amazing from YouTube clips.

His 60 seconds YouTube clip will gives Shveds a run for his money

Bayo had clips like this

David Ginola and Fabian Schar were also given a mention – quite the throwback.
Watch the lesser clubs in the EPL lining up to sign him now, just like they did with David Ginola and Fabian Schar both ended up signing for Newcastle. https://t.co/JE5Tp2DRdW

It remains to be seen if the Parkhead outfit hold genuine interest in Weissman, but his goalscoring record and finishing prowess simply can’t be ignored.
