Steve Evans impressed by Scott Robertson's early showings since joining on loan

Gillingham manager Steve Evans has been discussing the impact of Celtic loanee Scott Robertson at the club, after his loan move to the Kent club has started impressively. 

The youngster was in action last night as Gillingham knocked Championship side Coventry City out of the EFL Cup last night. 

It followed on from his debut against Hull City at the weekend and the 19-year-old has clearly impressed his loan boss. 

“He’s a player,” Steve Evans told Kent Online. “He is a kid in a man’s body and I am pleased we got him.

“I am not going to build him up to what he is not, he is a young players who has come from a great club and he has got great potential but potential never got you playing for that great club on a regular basis.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

“I will speak to Lenny (Neil Lennon) and I will let him know my thoughts. A lot of the game he was good, he has to move it a little quicker, he has to be a bit sharper, but when he does that he will be very, very good.”

Evans is known to be a massive Celtic fan and will therefore be doing his absolute best to make sure that Robertson can make it at Parkhead. 

Clearly this loan move could be a good move for the Celtic talent, who has been on the precipice of the Celtic first-team in recent times. 

Neil Lennon is clearly a fan of the player and there is hope that one day the teenager can find his way into the Celtic first-team picture. 

The hope is that this early promising start can lead to a strong full season at senior level for the player, with Evans clearly ready to continue reporting back to the Celtic boss regarding his progress.

Hopefully, Celtic have a star in their making out on loan.
