Brendan Rodger reveals how Celtic missed out on permanent Patrick Roberts deal

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that real reason why the Hoops could not pursue Patrick Roberts on a permanent contract.

The England Under-20 international rejoined the Scottish champions on loan from Manchester City for the 2017/18 season.

Roberts, 20, made a huge impact during his stay in Glasgow as he contributed 11 goals in 47 games for Rodgers' side who went on to celebrate a domestic treble. The youngster was part of the Manchester City squad during their pre-season of the United States but fell out of the reckoning after the new season kicked off.
