Celtic starlet Scott Robertson feels that his recent loan move to Doncaster Rovers can only improve his game going forward.

Robertson spent the first half of the season on-loan League One side Gillingham, before he was recalled to Celtic in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis at the club.

Return to club was a short one

However, he didn’t stay at Celtic for long, and he was on the move before the January transfer window closed. This team he joined another League One side, Doncaster Rovers.

The 19-year-old made his debut for the promotion contenders in the weekend’s 3-2 win over Oxford. After having discussions with manager Darren Moore, Robertson feels that the move to Doncaster will suit his style of play, and will enhance his game.

“I think the manager here likes to play a bit more to my strengths, more total football as you would call it” he said (Doncaster Free Press).


“Really impressed”

“I think it’s something I’ll fit quite well into. The gaffer has been excellent with me. I had a couple of chats with him in the summer, and I was really impressed then” Robertson continued.

Interestingly, Robertson played in a more attacking role for Doncaster than he did at Gillingham, or he has done for Celtic.

That move further up the park was no issue for Robertson. Indeed, he feels that he can play in that position if required.

“I could play a bit deeper, but I’m happy to play anywhere the manager wants me to. I was playing in attacking midfield. Usually I play a bit deeper than that, but I’ll do a job for the manager wherever he wants me.

“It’s showed some faith in me that he thinks he can play in that position” Robertson concluded.

Should Robertson help Doncaster get promoted, then he will come back to Celtic full of confidence. All the better if he has added some new aspects to his game as well. That will surely give him more of a chance of making it at Celtic Park.
