Roberts celebrates Celtic goal against parent club

Celtic finished off what was an impressive Champions League campaign under Brendan Rodgers with a 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, although the Scottish giants were unable to advance from their group.

Paired with the Citizens, Barcelona and Borussia Monchengladbach, Celtic were always unlikely to advance to the knock-out stages of the tournament but still put in some memorable performances, with young starlets like Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts impressing.

The latter of the aforementioned pair was on the scoresheet last night as he netted a fantastic solo goal against parent side Manchester City, after being allowed to feature against his employers due to an agreement in his contract.

Naturally, the 19-year-old was delighted with his first goal in European football and took to Twitter to immortalise an important moment in his fledgling career.

With Celtic finishing fourth with three points to their name, the Bhoys will not face additional European fixtures in Spring and failed to win any of their six matches, securing three draws, but will still be happy with their displays.
