After losing his two front teeth in a league draw with Crewe Alexandra, Celtic youngster Scott Robertson received some astonishing praise from his loan boss. After Crewe’s one all draw against Shrewsbury, manager David Artell spoke to the club’s website about the 20-year-old’s debut for The Railwaymen;
“The incident was not intentional and the referee really should have stopped the play. That is what we were unhappy about because he took too long to stop the game because it was obvious that Scott was injured.
“He has two loose front teeth, so we keep saying that he now looks like a proper Glaswegian but he has been in this league enough with other loans to know what to expect.
“He is a tough lad. I spoke to one of their players after the game and he was telling me how strong he thought Scott was and not just because he had his teeth virtually knocked out either!
“He was impressed with his performance and so were we.”
Crewe Alexandra are without a win in their first 6 games of the new season and find themselves placed 23rd in England’s League 1 with just two points. Alexandra will hope Robertson’s performances in the middle of the park will motivate his teammates and see results fall the sides way.
The midfielder is currently on his third loan spell away from the hoops, previously playing for Gillingham and Doncaster. With his contract set to expire in the summer of 2023, Robertson will be keen to make an impression when he returns from his one year loan in the hope to be rewarded with a new contract.
