Kieran Tierney and Patrick Roberts sent a Get Well Soon message to a young Celtic fan on Sunday and were promised ‘a game of fitbaw’ when young Patrick is fit and well.
Patrick’s mum caught up with the Celtic favourites at Scott Brown’s testimonial dinner on Sunday night with the two players happy to send their best wishes.
The youngster seemed shy about the message from his heroes but found his voice to record a message back to the Celtic duo.

Spirits among the Celtic players seemed high at Sunday’s dinner as they mixed with supporters ahead of Sunday’s derby match at Ibrox.
While a stream of claims flow out of Ibrox about what Graeme Murty’s side are about to do Celtic are quietly going about their business as they look for a fourth successive win in the south side of the city.
Tierney will be a key part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans but as he continues his recovery from injury Roberts will have to settle for a place on the bench.
