Celtic fans certainly weren’t left disappointed by Patrick Roberts return to the hoops.
A summer long campaign to bring the winger back from Manchester City ended successfully in the final week of the transfer window with the 20-year-old returning on a season long loan.
Despite not having played a competitive match since the Scottish Cup Final in May there was no lack of sharpness about the loan bhoy.
There was plenty of trickery in his play but also a number of great through balls that caused havoc among the Hamilton defenders.
Although Roberts failed to score it was a hugely impressive display from Brendan Rodgers side as they swept Hamilton away in a devastating first half display.
Stuart Armstrong opened the scoring before a double from Scott Sinclair put the match beyond the home side.
Odsonne Edouard scored a debut goal midway through the second half and although Hamilton scored a late consolation it was the form of Roberts that had the Celtic fans drooling ahead of Tuesday’s visit from PSG in the Champions League.
