Stevie Evans has described Scott Robertson as a wonderful talent.
The midfielder moved on loan to Gillingham at the start of the season for a crash course in the real life of football in League One with an unrelenting fixture list.
After a month out of action due to a hamstring injury Robertson enjoyed 60 minutes at the weekend against Oldham but was absent from last night’s win over Wimbledon.
Explaining the decision to leave the midfielder out of the Wimbledon mantch, Evans told Kent on line:
He is simply a wonderful talent. He will have gone away to his apartment really down and devastated but I will contact him to say what the reason was.
I spoke to the people at Celtic and they think he is being educated here, they have sent people to watch him and I talked to them because I said I wasn’t going to include him, they are delighted with his progress.
Robertson has featured in eight League One matches this season and two League Cup ties while those left behind in the Celtic Reserve squad got their first competitive game of the season yesterday against Partick Thistle in the Glasgow Cup.
Central midfield is one of the most competitive areas in the Celtic side with Olivier Ntcham struggling for game time and Nir Bitton playing almost exclusively in defence.
With Robertson impressing at Gillingham and Kerr McInroy doing likewise at Dunfermline Celtic could have two fresh options for central midfield next season.
