Brendan Rodgers Delivers Bad Patrick Roberts Injury News

Brendan Rodgers has said Patrick Roberts could miss over a month of Celtic action after picking up an injury in their 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.

The Hoops manager was quick to speak to the press after his side’s Scottish Premiership draw in Glasgow this afternoon.

Despite taking the lead through Leigh Griffiths, Celtic lost that lead after Jordan Jones’ goal for Killie in the second half.

And the teams played out a 1-1 draw that will no doubt delight the away side, but disappoint the home team so soon after their very impressive 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

They did extend their unbeaten domestic run to 62 games, but would likely have wanted the win to do that – and the Roberts news will just add to the disappointment:

Roberts lasted just half an hour of today’s game before limping off to be replaced by Scott Sinclair.

Given how important he’s been for Celtic since signing on loan from Manchester City at the end of the summer transfer window, it’s a setback for the Scottish champions.

They play Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek and will have to rely on others to provide their attacking threat instead of Roberts.
