Celtic fans react on Twitter to Patrick Roberts' stunning development squad debut

The Manchester City loanee starred for Celtic's Development Squad... on his 19th birthday.

Celtic fans are already excited about Patrick Roberts making his first-team debut having seen him in action for the Development Squad.

Indeed, during his 19th birthday, the Manchester City forward - on loan at Parkhead for 18 months - made his debut for the reserves and netted, while also registering three assists.

That was more than enough to get Celtic fans talking and the buzz brought by the youngster could be enough to swing some momentum in struggling boss Ronny Deila's favour.

The Bhoys need an injection of energy from somewhere as their faltering season stutters and Roberts could be the man to bring what's needed.

Manchester City will no doubt be monitoring the young talent, who could have a bright future at the Etihad Stadium if he is the real deal.

For now, though, it's Celtic fans who can get excited about the 19-year-old. Here's how the Hoops faithful reacted on Twitter to the Manchester City forward's stunning debut:
