After all the rumours yesterday, things are quiet on the Patrick Roberts front, but no doubt there will be news at some stage today, maybe during the press conference for tomorrow’s game against Partick Thistle.

ON THIS DAY: In 1991, Liam Brady’s first league game as Celtic manager was a rollercoaster 4-3 win over Dundee United at Tannadice. Celtic’s winning goal a spectacular volley by John Collins in the 87th minute.
