Celtic coach John Kennedy, speaking ahead of tomorrow night’s game against Partick Thistle, has revealed that Celtic ‘need to be patient’ in our attempts to bring Patrick Roberts back to the club. Reading between the lines it seems that any deal won’t be resolved until nearer the end of the transfer window.

Kennedy also spoke about today’s appointment of Shaun Maloney as Celtic under-20s development coach, describing him as someone that Celtic’s youth players ‘can look up to’. There was also news on Eboue Kouassi’s knee injury that he suffered against Kilmanock, as it doesn’t seem to be as bad as first feared.
