TEENAGE wonderbhoy Patrick Roberts has Motherwell in his sights after admitting he should have done better in the goalless draw against Dundee.
The on-loan Manchester City winger fired blanks at Dens Park on Tuesday night after claiming his first two senior goals in Celtic’s 3-1 win over Hearts at Parkhead in the previous game.
Roberts, who agreed an 18-month deal with the Hoops in January, said: “I felt it wasn’t the worst game, but we didn’t get the goals or the three points and that’s the most important thing coming into this part of the season when we need to get the wins in every game.

“Once you get the first goal and you’re playing well, you feel you will get more and more. However, we never managed that and it was pretty frustrating.unspecified-6

“I thought I didn’t too badly, but if I don’t score or create a goal, then I don’t feel it’s been a good game for me.

“Now we have to pick our heads up and go again on Saturday and focus on the Motherwell game.
“We will aim to go and get three points there and then we will prepare for the Scottish Cup semi-final after that.”

Speaking on the club’s official website, the 19-year-old entertainer added: “It’s been a great experience so far.

“II’m only young, I feel very good and long may it continue.

“Everyone has a laugh when they come to training. Even with all the competition, it’s fun and enjoyable which is what you need as you don’t want a boring changing room or boring training.
“That doesn’t set your mind straight for the week. I am really enjoying it.”
