Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that winger Patrick Roberts will undergo a scan on an injured hamstring, after he was substituted in the 1-1 draw at Motherwell last night.

The 20-year-old was replaced by Tom Rogic after 11 minutes in the draw at Fir Park.

Rodgers confirmed that is was the same injury that kept him out of Celtic’s last home Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich last month.

“We’ll have to look at that and see where he’s at,” Rodgers told BBC Sport.

“It was the same hamstring [that kept Roberts sidelined earlier in the season] so it’s probably not good news.”

Roberts is on-loan at Celtic Park from Premier League leaders Manchester City and has been in good form for Rodgers’ side this season, scoring one goal and delivering three assists in 12 appearances in all competitions.

Motherwell threatened an upset last night and took the lead when Celtic defender Mikael Lustig diverted Craig Tanner’s 78-minute free-kick into his own net.

Celtic responded and were awarded a controversial penalty after Callum McGregor went down in the box after a challenge from Andy Rose.

Scott Sinclair kept his nerve from the spot and swept the ball into the top corner to score his 12th goal of the season and Celtic’s unbeaten domestic record to 66 matches.

The result sees the Hoops extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table to four points after second-placed Aberdeen were beaten 3-0 by Rangers.
