Celtic Women have lost out on one of last seasons key stars as midfielder Lisa Robertson joins Birmingham City on a season long-loan.
Yesterday, it was announced that the SWPL player of the year last season would be departing to join up with former Glasgow City boss Scott Booth in the Women Super League down south.

Robertson played a massive part in Fran Alonso’s side, which created history by qualifying for the Champions League and finishing 2nd in the League, just behind Glasgow City.
It came as a surprise to see the midfielder depart on a loan deal with no mention of a potential future fee or option to buy, which Birmingham may look to have taken up next summer.
Heading down to join the Blues, she joins another one of Alonso’s key players from last season, with winger Sarah Ewens also making a move to the WSL with Birmingham in the past month.
They will both be massively missed in the side, but we wish them all the best in the future.
