Celtic midfielder Scott Robertson has completed a season-long loan move to Gillingham.

The 19-year-old defensive midfielder joins the English League One outfit managed by Scotsman Steve Evans.

This temporary switch for Robertson comes just two weeks after the youngster signed a new three-year contract at Parkhead, however, he was unlikely to see much first-team action for Neil Lennon’s side this term.

With no reserve or youth team football currently being played, a move to England was seen as the best option for the teenagers’ development.

Robertson has made four senior appearances for the Hoops, including one Europa League group stage match against CFR Cluj.

The defensive-minded midfielder also grabbed his first goal as a Bhoy when he found the net in a Challenge Cup tie with Falkirk back in August 2019.

Highly regarded by the staff and Lennon himself at Celtic Park, Robertson’s 2020/20 campaign for Gillingham will be one to keep a keen eye on.
