It will come as no real surprise to Celtic supporters that Patrick Roberts is on the verge of leaving the club and return to his parent club Manchester City at the end of the season.
Roberts’ imminent departure from the club was confirmed by Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers on the club’s official Twitter account.
After spending two different loan spells with Celtic, it is no surprise the England under-20 international wants to return down south, and try and become a success with the Premier League champions.
Roberts has won all there is in Scotland with Celtic, becoming the part of the team which clinched a domestic treble and also set a British record of 69 domestic matches without defeat.
Roberts also managed to experience some European success with Celtic, netting the club’s second goal in Celtic’s 3-0 Champions League group stage victory over Anderlecht.
All being said, it’s not so very possible seeing a player to stay with a club for two-and-a-half years on loan, and Rodgers and Celtic did very well to get him return to Celtic for one more loan season in August after his original loan deal came to an end.
