Chris Sutton Elaborates on His Patrick Roberts Comments

Chris Sutton Elaborates on His Patrick Roberts Comments

Chris Sutton has explained his comments suggesting that Patrick Roberts would be returning to Celtic for a second spell at the club, as the European deadline for signing players passed.

As we told you on Tuesday evening, former Hoops striker Sutton claimed he had it on ‘good authority’ that Roberts was returning to Glasgow from his current club Man City, following his successful loan spell last season.

For players to be involved against Kazakhstan cracks Astana on Wednesday night in the Champions League play-off first-leg, they had to have signed on the dotted line by 11pm on Tuesday.

Well, 11pm came and went, and there was no sign of Roberts holding a green and white scarf outside the Parkhead main entrance – prompting Sutton to elaborate on his earlier comments:

So, there you have it – Chris is definitely sticking to his guns on this one.

Do you think Roberts will be a Celtic player again this season?
