Patrick Roberts claims Celtic teammates Kieran Tierney and Callum McGregor have been unbelievable this season

Celtic

The trio helped the Scottish Premiership side clinch their fifth consecutive league title.

Patrick Roberts has claimed that Celtic teammates Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney have been unbelievable this season, and have helped him settle in at Parkhead, the Evening Times reports.

The 19-year-old - who is on loan from Manchester City until the end of next season - has scored five goals in his last six league games to help the Hoops power their way to the Scottish Premiership title. 

And after making an impressive impact since joining the club in January, the winger claimed that it was partly down to two of the fellow youngsters amongst the squad that he is enjoying life with the Bhoys.

"It's good to have young players. Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney have been unbelievable. I really enjoy playing with them and I also get on great with them at the training ground, it's good to have that relationship when you know what each other is doing on and off the pitch," he told the Evening Times.

While Roberts is only set to be a Celtic player for one more season, the strength of some of the younger players like Tierney will give Ronny Deila's successor plenty of confidence that the foundations are there to ensure that the squad remain at the summit of the Scottish game for several years to come. 

And while younger players are often given a chance due to injury, or to help them prepare for when they are pushing for a regular first-team spot a few years down the line, Roberts and Tierney have proved this season that they arguably deserve the number of opportunities they have received by often playing better than the members of the squad they are competing with in their respective positions.
