Transfer Latest – Scott Robertson joins Fleetwood Town on two-and-a-half year deal

As expected Scott Robertson has today left Celtic to sign a two-and-a-half year deal with Scott Brown’s Fleetwood Town. The delighted English club posted the signing confirmation of the sought-after Celtic midfielder this afternoon revealing that they had won the race, fighting off stiff competition from elsewhere in England.

Fleetwood FC confirmed: The Cods had to fight off teams throughout the Football League pyramid for the signature of the midfielder, who has already managed to accrue more than 50 professional appearances in his career, including one in the Europa League for the Scottish champions against CFR Cluj.

Robertson, who spent time at The Bhoys with our head coach Scott Brown, already knows the English Football League well as he has spent time at Gillingham, Doncaster Rovers, and Crewe Alexandra, but will now move forward with the Cods.

Head coach Scott Brown said on the signing: “He’s a fantastic signing for the club and I’m delighted to get it over the line. I knew him from my time with Celtic and have had the opportunity to see him grow as a person and a player over the years.

“I’m sure he’ll be great for the club; both myself and Scott have a bond with Celtic and they were brilliant to deal with throughout the move.”

The 21-year-old will wear the number 10 at the club and will be eligible for Saturday’s League One clash against Sheffield Wednesday, subject to international clearance.

Best of luck to Scott down at Fleetwood playing for Broony.
