Celtic youngster Scott Robertson has bagged his first goal at senior level, scoring the second in Crewe Alexandra’s draw with Cambridge United.

Set up by Oliver Finney, who scored Crewe’s first, Robertson finished from inside the penalty box to cap a great start to life on loan. Already a huge fit with fans, he’s impressed both the Crewe faithful and his manager, David Artell, who told his club’s website in September [CAFC]:

“Scott’s character is bang on. He listens intently and he looks at you and you know he is taking it all in. There is no noise going on in his head when you speak to him. He wants to listen and learn and when you are like that then you are only going to get better.”

Meanwhile, Crewe fans have described him as “a gem” and “different gravy”.

Unfortunately, Crewe couldn’t keep their lead. 2 goals, including a stoppage time equaliser from Adam May, meant Scott Robertson’s side couldn’t bag all three points.

A win over Cambridge United would’ve kept them them out of the bottom three after 11 matches.

Still, it’s a telling contribution from the Celtic man, who will have delighted Crewe fans with his impact from midfield.

Celtic youngster Scott Robertson continues to impress for Crewe; will he get a Bhoys chance?

Given his work-rate, his utter fearlessness and his devotion to self-improvement, surely there’s a case for including Scott Robertson in the Celtic team when he’s back.

We’ve heard this before, of course. Spells with with Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers yielded similarly stand-out performances. His is a name associated with having a big future at the club.

The difference now, of course, is that he has a manger who’s expressed an interest in using him.

Before his loan move away from Celtic, Postecoglou insisted that there’ll be room for Robertson to break through at the club next season.

Given our current midfield woes, that’s a pretty good indication of what the future could look like for Celtic. Some will even argue we could’ve used him this season, with Rogic and Turnbull struggling to click for the Hoops.

And if Robertson sticks to his end of the bargain – which he’s emphatically doing – the signs look good.
