Huge Celtic boost: Key first-teamer set to return v Aberdeen - report
Patrick Roberts is set to make his comeback on Friday night after a hamstring injury has kept him out since November, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claims that the winger will play for Celtic’s development team on Friday night, marking his first return since the injury he picked up in the 1-1 draw with Motherwell in November.
His return will be a huge boost for Celtic after the youngster played a key role in the title-winning campaign last season.
So far, his second stint on loan from Man City hasn’t gone as well, after injuries have limited him to just six Premiership appearances.
The report claims that he will play in the game against Partick Thistle at Morton’s Cappielow on Friday night and that if he comes through okay he could be considered for the squad to face Aberdeen on Sunday.
Celtic’s first-team squad are currently in Russia as they get set to play the second leg of their Europa tie with Zenit St petersburg.
They hold a slender 1-0 lead but Zenit don’t have an away goal and that could prove crucial tonight.
