Celtic is the best place for Patrick Roberts to continue his development, that’s according to the player himself.

The 20-year-old winger has agreed a further twelve-month loan stay from Manchester City having already previously enjoyed a particularly successful eighteen months at Celtic Park.

“Celtic wanted to sign me permanently but City didn’t want to sell me,” Roberts told BBC Scotland. “From that point of view it’s good that [City manager] Pep [Guardiola] and the team there want to keep me involved.

“Letting me come here to carry on my development with the manager and the team is good as well. They’ll have full interest in me, which is good,” he added. “Going into training today, [it] doesn’t feel like I’ve been away at all. Just to get back into things again will be good for me.”
