Celtic announced this week that academy talent Scott Robertson has signed a new two-year deal with the club that will see him stay until the summer of 2021.

Clearly regarded as one of the outstanding talents emerging from the club's youth teams, Robertson will now have the opportunity to travel a path towards senior action competitively.

Mikey Johnston, Karamoko Dembele and Henderson have all been involved over the last few months, with other older talents such as Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor and James Forrest setting an example that homegrown talents can prevail at Celtic Park.
