Patrick Roberts was the hero for Celtic on Saturday as the Scottish champions surged to a 4-1 victory over St Johnstone at Celtic Park, ensuring their unbeaten streak continues in domestic football.
The Hoops have not been beaten in all domestic competition since Brendan Rodgers came to the club and are just a few matches away from making unprecedented history in Scottish football.
Roberts was on target twice in the 4-1, just two of many direct goal contributions this season. Over the last month or so particularly he’s reached top form, putting in two magical performances against Rangers to sink the Bhoys’ great city rivals.
Having recently made the decision not to go to the U20 World Cup with in England in order to compete for honours at Celtic in the Scottish Cup Final, he opened up on his reasons why after the game.

It’s likely that the Hoops fans won’t be seeing Patrick Roberts in action after the summer with the young attacking midfielder due to return to Manchester City. However his commitment and desire to achieve special things at Celtic is a credit to him considering he has no long-term loyalty at the club.
Can he be the difference maker against Aberdeen at Hampden as the Bhoys aim for a domestic treble of trophies?
