BRENDAN RODGERS has all but sealed Patrick Roberts departure speaking about the young Englishman today.
With Roberts interview last week confirming he plans to try and make a name for himself down south, anyone with a scintilla of hope that Celtic would try and change their mind will have their hopes dashed.
Brendan spoke today about the need for freshening up the squad for next term and citing that Roberts will be a player who will be missed.
Brendan Rodgers: “We are going to lose Pat, who will go back to Man City. He’s had a fantastic two-and-a-half years and he’s been unfortunate this season with injuries and whatnot.” pic.twitter.com/9RBfxPqxam

Lewis Morgan and Ryan Christie will both be trying to dislodge James Forrest from his position next season with Roberts no longer in the running – both will feel they can stake a legitimate claim for a place in this Celtic side.
