Fulham and Celtic fans react on Twitter to Patrick Roberts loan move

Fulham Turnstiles

The Manchester City forward, signed from Fulham last summer, has joined Celtic on an 18-month loan.

Celtic confirmed the loan signing of Manchester City forward Patrick Roberts on Deadline Day.

Indeed, the Bhoys' League Cup semi-final embarrassment on Sunday afternoon - when they were knocked out after a 3-1 defeat to Ross County - has been followed up by the Scottish champions confirming a signing or two in a bid to improve their stuttering squad.

Roberts, of course, had been linked with a loan move from Manchester City for some time but Celtic only finalised the deal on Deadline Day.

Many are pleased that Celtic have been able to attract another talented prospect to Parkhead.

However, not everyone is delighted. Some Celtic fans have expressed disappointment that their own youngsters haven't been prioritised, while some Fulham and Manchester City supporters have also asked questions.

Indeed, couldn't Roberts have just stayed at Fulham for another year?

Celtic may argue he can get European football and compete for trophies in Scotland but Fulham could certainly have done with the teenager in their battle against relegation from the Championship. Here's how the deal was viewed on Twitter...
