Just when we thought it seemed that any hope of Patrick Roberts returning to Celtic was hone, Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies has revealed that the club are in ‘constant dialogue’ with the player regarding his return. However, it now seems that as well as Nice being interested in the player Southampton are set to make a move for Roberts, so it seems that matters will come to a head soon enough.

Davies also said that Celtic don’t intend to sign any players before the Astana Champions League play-offs - so who knows where that leaves the pursuit of Roberts - and confirmed that the club are still in talks with Shaun Maloney over a coaching role.
