​Man City loanee Roberts says it will be 'hard' for him to return to Celtic

Man City loanee Patrick Roberts has admitted that it would be hard for him to return to Celtic following the conclusion of his spell.

The 20-year-old has been a key player for the Hoops during his 18-month loan spell, and he is set to conclude his time in Scotland with the Scottish Cup final against Aberdeen on Saturday.

When asked about his future, he said: "Nobody at Manchester City has been in touch. They want me to enjoy the final, get the trophy and we'll talk after that.

"Could I stay? It's hard. One thing my mum has always said is that you want to be adored by fans.

"I've always wanted to get people off their seat. That's what I enjoy, putting on a show. It is great to hear the fans sing my name and to feel that love is something I could only dream about.

"I have said a few times now that you don't know what is going to happen in football.

"I take it day by day and we'll see how it goes.
