'Superb wee player', 'Overrated' - Celtic fans split as attacker confirms future plans
Celtic fans on social media seem split down the middle as Patrick Roberts has announced his intention to return to Manchester City and have a crack at the Premier League.
The 21-year-old is currently in his second loan spell with the Hoops, but it seems like the upcoming league match against Aberdeen will be his last as he has confirmed, as reported by Sky Sports, that he wants to play in the Premier League after the summer.
The player has been badly affected by a knee injury this season and has only started two games in the whole of 2018, and his second spell on loan with the Hoops has not been as successful as his first.
Fans seem split on how well the player has done with the Bhoys, with some sad to see him and go and other feeling that the Hoops can spend the money they are saving on Roberts on signing Odsonne Edouard on a permanent deal.
Here are some of the best reactions to the news that Roberts seems set to be on his way out of Glasgow:
Injured some of last season and finished the season well and injured most of this season and hardly kicked a ball ..i wouldnt spend massive money on him anyway if im honest

Very unlucky with injuries this season. Would have liked a full season out him as in full flow he is a superb wee player.

Can not blame him, the league we play in has again held us back

Very overrated anyway, if we want to go the next level he shouldn’t be here

2 years, trophies, countless tricks and turns. The lad has made us all fans of him. I hope he goes onto fulfill his ambitions. Celtic will always support him.

Hoops fans will be hoping that Roberts is able to finish his Hoops career in style and help lead the Bhoys to their second successive domestic treble, making history in the process.
