Former Celtic striker Andy Walker has praised winger Patrick Roberts.

Pundit Andy Walker has told Sky Sports that he was 'very impressed' with Celtic's Patrick Roberts in the 3-0 win over Morton on Sunday afternoon.

The Bhoys recorded a much-needed win in the Scottish Cup, beating Championship side Morton 3-0 at Celtic Park after first half goals from Leigh Griffiths, Gary Mackay-Steven and Callum McGregor.

The win not only set up a semi-final clash with Old Firm rivals Rangers, but also marginally eased the pressure on manager Ronny Deila after last week's 0-0 draw against Dundee.

There hasn't been a lot for Celtic fans to shout about recently, but the performance of winger Patrick Roberts did give them some entertainment on Sunday afternoon.

The teenage winger, signed on an 18-mont loan deal from Manchester City in January, only came on as a substitute after an hour against Morton, but his cameo gave Celtic fans a glimpse of what's to come.

Roberts has great dribbling ability and trickery when taking on opposition defenders, and Celtic supporters will be hoping that the exciting winger is given more chances to impress in the coming weeks.

After the final whistle, former Celtic striker and current pundit Andy Walker has told Sky Sports that he was 'very impressed' with Roberts, and thinks Celtic need the England youth international to dominate during his temporary spell in Glasgow.

"I was very impressed," said Walker. "It was the first time I've really clapped eyes on him, and I think he's got really quick feet, he's very direct. I think he really enjoys two or three players getting close to him, because his feet are so quick, and he moves the ball from left to right in a very short space so he can get away from defenders. When you see players like that, and obviously he's got huge potential, Celtic want to see him dominating when he gets a game from the start," he added.
