Scott Brown was as pleased/relieved as anyone to finally here that Patrick Roberts had returned to Celtic.
The hoops skipper is on Scotland duty but after weeks of getting questioned about the return of the Manchester City winger finally had positive news to report yesterday.

Getting the deal completed brings to an end a summer long saga that dominated social media while having a major impact on Celtic’s European prospects.
The bromance banter with Kieran Tierney was starting to wear a little thin as Thursday’s transfer deadline approached.
While there are concerns about the health of the Celtic defence the return of Roberts adds an extra dimension to the attacking options available to Brendan Rodgers.
The return to fitness and form of Moussa Dembele will give the team a massive boost but with Roberts able to play in any attacking position and providing a unique threat cutting in from the right wing the defenders of PSG, Bayern Munich and Anderlecht will have something extra to worry over.
