Celtic may be in the market for new signings in the January transfer window, given that they are 16 points adrift of Rangers in the title race.

Yes, Celtic have three games in hand and can close the gap to seven points, but they have been short of their best this season.

Neil Lennon may be keen to bolster his attacking options, and another winger could be targeted with James Forrest enduring injury problems.

The Daily Record now report that Celtic have been alerted to the potential availability of Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts.

Roberts is on loan at Middlesbrough, but his lack of football means he may head back to City before being moved on again in January.

It’s stated that Celtic are interested in taking Roberts back to Parkhead, which could be appealing to the 23-year-old.

Roberts spent two-and-a-half years on loan at Celtic between January 2016 and the summer of 2018, registering 18 goals and 26 assists with the Bhoys.

The winger has failed to match that success anywhere else, and Celtic fans have been discussing a potential move on Twitter.

Some feel that the saga surrounding a potential Roberts return are becoming boring, and aren’t convinced he would be worth re-signing because he has gone ‘backwards’, and would rather have QPR’s Bright Osayi-Samuel.

Others believe that signing Roberts would be a no-brainer, as he can bring the creativity that Celtic need against low blocks.
