‘Extremely promising’, ‘real coup’: Some fans blown away by Celtic prospect’s on-loan display last night

Celtic youngster Scott Robertson shone in his first start for his loan side on Tuesday night, earning praise from a number of their fans.

The 19-year-old, who recently signed a contract extension at Parkhead until the summer of 2023, joined English League One side Gillingham on a season-long loan last week.

Robertson made his debut for Steve Evans’ side last week, coming off the bench in the 2-0 home loss to Hull on Saturday.

On Tuesday, the young midfielder was named in the starting XI for the League Cup meeting with Coventry, and put in a tenacious, hard-working performance in the middle of the park.

His efforts on the night saw him earn huge praise from the Gillingham faithful on social media:

 

The Gills fell behind to Maxime Biamou’s goal just after the hour mark but levelled deep into injury time through Jordan Graham’s penalty, before prevailing 5-4 on spot kicks.

Robertson came through the ranks at Celtic and made his professional debut in an Europa League tie in December last year, starting against CFR Cluj.

As reported by the Daily Record, his best position is in defensive midfield but he is also capable of playing further forward or even in a wide position.
