Celtic fans would love to see Patrick Roberts make a sensational return to the club this summer after he was spotted in attendance during Saturday’s Scottish Cup win over Hearts.
Roberts spent two-and-a-half successful seasons on loan at the Hoops from Manchester City before saying his goodbyes and trying out a temporary move to La Liga side Girona.
Nonetheless he holds an affinity for the club and made the trip to Hampden to watch his old club complete a ‘treble treble’ of trophies, with fans quick to track him down for a photo.

By turning up, he’s provoked a big social media reaction from supporters who would love Neil Lennon to make a transfer move for him in the upcoming window.
Unless he makes a quick move away from the Etihad this summer, speculation about a Hoops return will likely rumble on for months.
These fans have already taken to Twitter to share their hopes of such a transfer…
Seeing Paddy Roberts was at the game actually melts my heart, plz come home @patrick7roberts ?
