Patrick Roberts passionately celebrates scoring for Celtic in Scottish Premiership action.

Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts scored the first two senior goals of his career on Saturday by helping Celtic to a 3-1 win at home to Hearts.

The 19-year-old scored either side of the break to give the Hoops a huge win which lifts Ronny Deila's side seven points clear of second-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership title race.

Roberts, who joined the Hoops on an 18-month loan from Manchester City, did extremely well for the second goal, in particular, as he delicately chipped goalkeeper Neil Alexander for the  Bhoys' third of the afternoon.

Photos have emerged online of the youngster celebrating one of the goals, and it is plain to see how much it meant to him.

Deila will hope the rest of his squad can match his passion at Hampden Park on April 17 as Celtic clash with fellow Glasgow giants Rangers in a Scottish Cup semi-final.

Roberts, who joined the club in February, will be given first-hand experience - or so he hopes - of playing in one of the most hostile derbies in European football.
