'Beautiful', 'About time' - Celtic fans elated over Rodgers decision v Hamilton
Celtic fans on Twitter have been expressing their delight after Brendan Rodgers chose to hand Patrick Roberts his first start of the year against Hamilton on Sunday.
The 21-year-old attacker made his return from injury a few weeks ago but has only made cameo appearances since then, and fans are elated that he is in the team, which was announced on the club’s official Twitter account.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the news that Roberts has returned to the first-team:
Perfect lineup but I would’ve preferred to see Musonda over Sinclair tbh

About time Roberts started

Tierney and Roberts starting. Good stuff

Roberts was one of the Hoops’ best players last season, but injury has prevented him from making a big impact this season, and as such Rodgers will be delighted to have the player back for the last month of the season.
The other team-news sees Scott Bain return in place of Craig Gordon in goals – potentially due to concerns with Dundee’s plastic pitch, with Kristoffer Ajer, Kieran Tierney and Olivier Ntcham all returning to the starting line-up after missing out in the midweek goalless draw v Dundee.
A win for the Hoops will move them only one victory away from retaining the league title, and it appears as though Rodgers wants it wrapped up as soon as possible, picking an attack minded outfit for Sunday’s clash.
