Celtic fans felt a mixture of amusement and anger at the Daily Record article slamming Patrick Roberts for returning to Celtic.

Gordon Parks isn’t especially noted for trying to run down the hoops but some google searches managed to string together articles with a similar theme.

With a printed circulation now at under 150,000 the online Record has far more influence even if it only brings in a small fraction of the income still generated from printed sales.

Parks struggles to make a decent argument for his case and simply seems unhappy that Brendan Rodgers has another quality attacking option for his team of Invincibles.

While it’s not quite comparable to the attacking options of Paris St Germain Celtic fans will be able to look forward to seeing Roberts and Scott Sinclair supporting Moussa Dembele or Leigh Griffiths with Tom Rogic, Stuart Armstrong or Callum McGregor pusing up in support.

The Roberts bashing story has certainly reached a bigger audience than most but judging by the reaction of Celtic fans reading it the opinion piece won’t do much for the dwindling credibility of the Daily Record.
