Michael Stewart raves about Celtic's superb Patrick Roberts after starring against Hearts

Celtic Stands

Michael Stewart has praised Celtic loanee Patrick Roberts.

Current pundit and former Manchester United midfielder Michael Stewart has told The Scottish Sun that he thought Patrick Roberts was 'superb' for Celtic in their 3-1 win over Hearts.

The Bhoys fell behind to a Jamie Walker opener at Celtic Park, but after Gary Mackay-Steven pulled Celtic level, winger Roberts took over with two great goals.

The first came when Tom Rogic slipped him in on goal, and he dinked the ball over Neil Alexander and into the net, before Stefan Johansen supplied him down the right hand side, and he cut infield to curl the ball into the far corner.

They were Roberts' first goals for Celtic since signing an 18-month loan deal with the club back in January, with Manchester City keen to see their winger - signed from Fulham last summer - develop away from the Etihad Stadium.

City will have been pleased with his performance against Hearts, and will no doubt be hoping that he can continue to produce game-changing performances under Ronny Deila in Glasgow.

After the game, former Manchester United and Scotland midfielder Michael Stewart told The Scottish Sun that he felt Roberts was 'superb' against Hearts, adding to the praise that the England Under-19 winger has been receiving since his performance.

Stewart added that he would simply keep giving the 19-year-old possession of the ball, because he can do great things - as seen with his two goals on Saturday.

"Patrick Roberts was superb," said Stewart. "He hardly had more than 10 touches but everything he did came off. If I was Celtic I would just keep feeding him."
