The English winger made his return to the Hoops on a season-long loan yesterday – much to the delight of supporters of the Scottish champions.
But it doesn’t seem like the move has gone down well with City fans, with this one particularly critical of the tricky wideman’s decision to return to Celtic after spending 18 months there on loan.
The fan, who runs the unofficial MCFC Reserves and Academy Twitter page, tweeted this to Roberts yesterday:
@patrick7roberts good luck in your loan but cheerio to a top level pro career – only one hastag & it involves liquid in plastic or glass

That’s a pretty harsh assessment of Roberts’ move considering he’s going to a team that wins trophies and plays in the Champions League.
Roberts’ brother Adam, who is vocal about his career, spotted that message and was quick to respond with a putdown:
Shut up you imbecile https://t.co/zLIYXdtHe1

That’s probably the reaction of every Celtic fan too.
They’re absolutely delighted that Roberts has decided to return north for another spell in the Hoops and will hope he can reproduce the form that made him such a favourite over the last two seasons.
