Manchester City-owned Norwich City winger Patrick Roberts has responded to Mikael Lustig’s post on Instagram following his departure from Celtic.
Lustig has revealed on Instagram that he is leaving Celtic and has posted an emotional message for everyone related to the club.
The 32-year-old right-back joined the Hoops back in 2012 and leaves the Glasgow giants a legend among the fans.
During his time at Celtic Park, the Sweden international defender won the Scottish Premiership title eight times, and the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup on four occasions each.
The defender also played for Celtic in the Champions League and in the Europa League.
Roberts was on loan at Celtic from Premier League outfit City from January 2016 until the summer of 2018 and played with Lustig.
The 22-year-old winger - who joined City from Fulham in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £11 million and has moved to Norwich on loan in the summer transfer window - has hailed Lustig, and so have Celtic duo Scott Brown and Kieran Tierney.

I had no idea how much this club and everything that comes with it would mean to me when I signed 7.5 years ago. It’s time for me and my family to move on, start a new chapter in life. To make a post on Instagram isn’t enough to express my feelings and thoughts about the situation. I wish I would’ve had the chance to get a proper good bye. I just want to say thank you to everyone I’ve had the honour to meet and work with at Celtic, all the players and staff. The memories will stay with me forever. Thank you to all of you that made Glasgow feel like home for me and my family for so many years. I will never forget your support. Hopefully I’ll see you all soon. I’ll definitely be back for the 10 in a row party!
Roberts wrote on Instagram: “Absolute hero!! Good luck ma man.”
Brown wrote on Instagram: “Love you and will miss you my friend.”
