Patrick Roberts opportunity for Celtic as old Tim recaptures top form weeks before being on a free

Patrick Roberts was on target for Sunderland in the League 1 playoff match vs Sheffield Wednesday yesterday which saw Sunderland head to Wembley to play Wycombe Wanderers for a chance of going to the Championship.

Should Sunderland go back to the second tier it is likely that Paddy will sign on the line for the North East English club, that said, should they fail, it will remain to be seen if he is happy to spend another season in the footballing wilderness.

Sunderland are a big club, goodness knows they have been in the wars of late and find themselves far below their potential, but if they cannot make it over the line to the Championship Paddy would be daft to sign on should better offers materialise.

One such offer could be at Celtic, James Forrest has barely played in the last 2 seasons and look visibly below his best, at the very worst we need someone to replace him and provide competition for Abada.

Sunderland fans are in raptures over his goal which kept Wednesday down.

Here are some of the replies.

This however is the biggest issue, he is out of contract on June 30 after years on loan and is available for free, if Sunderland do not snap him up we would be daft not to, he knows the stadium, the support and the league.

Sunderland play Wycombe on the 21st of May, if he isn’t in the Championship, surely he must be at Paradise.
