On-loan Celtic midfielder Scott Robertson has come in for more praise at his temporary side, Crewe Alexandra, by current boss David Artell.

The 20-year old has played just three games so far for the League One side but has already begun to impress Crewe fans.

As quoted by the Daily Record, Artell claims that Ange Postecoglou has ‘a gem’ on his hands and expressed his delight at having the talented midfielder at the club.

“I thought Scott Robertson was the best player on the pitch. He’s reliable in possession, he is tenacious in defence, and he can pick a pass.

“I’m not sure what the new Celtic manager is looking for, but he’s got a gem there. He’s certainly a good player for us, and we’re delighted to have him here for the season.”

On Crewe’s official club website, he added:

“Scott’s character is bang on. He listens intently, and he looks at you, and you know he is taking it all in. There is no noise going on in his head when you speak to him.

“He wants to listen and learn, and when you are like that, then you are only going to get better.

“He was terrific again on Saturday. Really, really good, and he was absolutely shattered in those last five minutes because he had run himself into the ground. He has probably been our best performer in the last three games, but he knows that has to continue.

“He knows he has to maintain those levels, but he has come here, taken things on board and his attitude to the work is first class.”

It has been evident in the last few weeks, and particularly in yesterday’s fixture, the lack of midfield options that Ange currently has at his disposal.

At a young age, minutes out on loan are crucial, and with this being his third side he will have spent time with, in English League One, Robertson is picking up valuable experience.

If he can keep up his performances and continue to get the praise he is, you would imagine some at the club might considering recalling the midfielder to add to the options available.
