Patrick Roberts Earns Rave Reviews After First Game Back For Celtic

Patrick Roberts Earns Rave Reviews After First Game Back For Celtic

Patrick Roberts is earning rave reviews after his first game back for Celtic tonight.

The Manchester City wideman returned to the Scottish champions for a second loan stint before the transfer deadline closed and was thrown straight into the starting XI by Brendan Rodgers.

That may have surprised some given he’s had little action this season so far, but Roberts showed he’s more than up to speed with a very impressive performance as Celtic beat Hamilton 4-1.

He played 67 minutes before being taken off by Rodgers, perhaps with an eye on the Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

But that was enough time to convince Celtic fans that it was definitely the right decision to bring Roberts back and throw him straight into the team:

Roberts didn’t get on the scoresheet in the win, but did lay on Odsonne Edouard for his debut goal before being taken off.

And now fans will be hoping he can keep his place going into Tuesday night’s game against PSG.
