PATRICK ROBERTS insists the bully boys do not intimidate this bunch of Celtic players.
The on-loan Manchester City winger said: “I guess any team, when they play Celtic, will look to kick us off the park.
“We have so much quality in the team and they look for other ways to stop us, but that is normal.
“We go into each game and we have to sense that and look for ways to overcome it.

“We are all good players right down to defence, but it can be tough when they come to Celtic Park or we go away and we know there are no easy games.
“I have been kicked many times, even in England. Everyone has their pride and they don’t want to be embarrassed if you get past them. We just get on with it.”

Roberts has confirmed Brendan Rodgers has moved to sound him out about the possibility of remaining in Glasgow beyond his current loan deal which expires at the end of the season.

The Englishman is due to return to his parent club after 18 months in Glasgow.

The 19-year-old touchline terror was coy on what the next step might be for him.

He added: “I have just focused on this season and trying to enjoy it. I haven’t thought about it at all. I will think about it when it comes to it.

“The manager has been great and he has expressed to me how he likes me as a player and it is good for me to know that he believes in me.

“He understands that you don’t know what is going to happen in football, so I just want to enjoy my football right now.

“I have loved every minute of playing up here. There have been a lot of games, good atmospheres and it is a really good bunch of lads.

“The impression I got before I came here was that it was a professional, top-class club and that is exactly what I have found.

“I just want to enjoy the rest of the season now.”
