Celtic have been handed an injury boost during their winter break training in Dubai as Patrick Roberts has been spotted in light training, according to a report.

The Daily Record are clams that Roberts has handed the Bhoys with a major injury boost as despite being ruled out for three months in December, he is already on the comeback trail.

Roberts has been out since the beginning of December after suffering a serious hamstring injury in a match against Motherwell.

The 20-year-old fan favourite, who is on-loan from Manchester City until the end of the season, was one of the stars of last season as the Bhoys won their first domestic treble since 2001, scoring 11 goals in the process.

He was thought to be leaving the club at the end of last season but Brendan Rodgers managed to convince Manchester City to let the player return to Glasgow on loan until the end of the season.

This season injury problems and the form of James Forrest have curtailed his appearances, and he only has one goal to his name, but it was an important one, as he put the Hoops 2-0 ahead in Anderlecht in the eventual 3-0 win which helped to clinch Europa League football.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to have the player back in the first-team squad for the first match after the winter break, the Scottish Cup tie against Brechin at Celtic Park on the 20th of January.
