SCOTT ROBERTSON is on his way OUT of Celtic – only eight days after CQN asked if the midfielder had a future at the champions.
The 21-year-old anchorman hasn’t kicked a ball in competitive action this season and is out of contract in summer.
The mystery surrounding his future has now been solved with Robertson being told he won’t be offered a new deal, according to a report in the Daily Record.
That has sparked interest on both sides of the border with a reunion with former Hoops skipper Scott Brown at Fleetwood Town already mentioned as a possibility.
DEBUT BHOY…Scott Robertson makes his first appearance for Celtic against Cluj in Romania three years ago.
St Mirren, too, could be interested in the player who was given his debut opportunity by Neil Lennon at the age of 18 in a Europa League match against Cluj in Romania in December 2019.
Robertson, who can talk to clubs next month, made a fleeting 23-minute appearance after replacing David Turnbull in the 2-1 loss to FC Sydney in Australia last month.
The youngster has had previous loans spells at Doncaster Rovers, Gillingham and Crewe. He was returned early to the champions in March after suffering a cartilage injury at League One Crewe.
Thankfully, Robertson made a full recovery, but there is no hope of a new deal at Ange Postecoglou’s side.
The middle-of-the-park operator has made 58 appearances across the board during his temporary stints in the lower reaches of English football.
LOAN CELT…Scott Robertson during one his three temporary stints in England.
At the start of July, CQN compiled a list of 10 players we believed would be heading for the Celtic exit before the midnight deadline on September 1.
Nine players on our roll call of possible departures did make the move on either permanent or temporary arrangements.
Christopher Jullien (Montpellier), Boli Bolingoli (Mechelen) and Ross Doohan (Tranmere Rovers) decided their futures lay elsewhere.
Going out on loan went Mikey Johnston (Vitoria Guimaraes), Albian Ajeti (Sturm Graz), Ismaila Soro (FC Arouca), Osaze Urhoghide (KV Oostende), Liam Shaw (Morecambe) and Johnny Kenny (Queen’s Park).
Now Robertson is about to join that list.
We wish him well on his journey in football.
