"Celtic have a gem"; Young Hoops midfielder continues to impress on loan in England
Celtic midfielder Scott Robertson has only made three appearances out on loan at Crewe Alexandra this season but their supporters already love him.
Robertson was an influential presence in the heart of the Crewe midfield yesterday as they picked up a 2-0 win over Burton Albion in English League One.
In England on a season-long loan, Robertson is hoping to catch the eye of manager Ange Postecoglou.
The youngster raved about pre-season under the Greek-Australian just a couple of weeks ago. He also told reporters that the Celtic boss is watching his progress closely this season. So far from being a loan that spells the end of his chances at Celtic, it’s one that could greatly help him.
That’s especially true if he keeps garnering hype for his performances from the Railwaymen faithful.
Robertson had a bit of a stop-start campaign last term, on loan at both Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers. However, this year he really has the chance to build something in a Crewe shirt and return to Celtic energised.
His contract at the Bhoys doesn’t expire until 2023, so there’s plenty of time for him at the club. Despite not being able to quite break into the first-team squad yet, to play regularly, I still have hope he can perform for the Bhoys in the future.
These Crewe fans certainly believe he has a big career ahead of him, taking to Twitter to share their excitement about his performance yesterday…
Celtic have a gem in Scott Robertson. He’s exactly what we needed in midfield, class again today just the others. What a player. 👏🏻 https://t.co/oVohlYl5Xn— Tyler Birtles (@TylerBirtles) September 18, 2021
Yep this guy is a class act. Well done to Dave for finding him and thanks to Celtic for lending him to us.— Stephen Hilditch (@SteveHilditch3) September 18, 2021
Top player and we’re very lucky to have him! One of those players where no matter what’s happening in the game, they are a pleasure to watch— Daz (@Dazzzzzz86) September 18, 2021
As much as I like lowery and we all know he’s a quality player I don’t think he’d get his spot back if Robertson carries in the way he’s going. If he was to sign the contract of course. #crewealex— Nathan Tudor (@NathanTudor92) September 18, 2021
I thought there was only One Neil Lennon back in the magical nineties… ❤🟢⚪— Phil B (@crewealex7) September 18, 2021
