Celtic fans react on Twitter to Patrick Roberts' full debut performance

Patrick Roberts made his full debut for Celtic on Wednesday evening.

Patrick Roberts started and completed his first full game for Celtic on Wednesday evening.

The young winger signed on an 18-month loan from Manchester City in the January transfer window, and has spent the last few weeks getting up to speed at Parkhead.


He featured for eight minutes as a substitute against Inverness last month, and Ronny Deila clearly believed he warranted a first start against Dundee.

However, the youngster could not help his loan team to victory, as the Bhoys struggled for a draw with Dundee.

The result was Celtic’s sixth draw of the season, and it meant they failed to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table. They currently sit four points ahead of Aberdeen, who will believe they can still topple the Bhoys off the top of the table.

Despite the struggles in the game, Roberts looked sharp and talented, although he could not pick up all three points single handedly.

The teenager showed flashes of his talent, and he is sure to grow in prominence at Parkhead over the coming months.

Following his full debut, Celtic fans took to Twitter to react to Roberts’ day for the the Bhoys, with some mixed views from the crowd.
