CELTIC youngster Scott Robertson may have only completed his move to Gillingham on a one-year loan last week but the central midfielder is already making a name for himself at the League One club.

The 19-year-old was handed his debut by Gills manager Steve Evans during Saturday's 2-0 league defeat to Hull City when he came off the bench before starting his first game for his new club in Tuesday's shoot-out victory over Coventry in the group stages of the EFL Trophy.

Robertson hit his side's third penalty on their way to the win and was a standout performer on the night, leaving Gillingham supporters gushing about their latest signing - and tipping the youngster for big things when he returns to Parkhead next summer.

Posting on Twitter, Gillingham asked their fans what they made of Robertson's displays and were inundated with gushing responses.

One account wrote: "Very impressed. Tenacious, worked hard, stood up to everything chucked at him and showed some real glimpses of ability with it. Liked the fact he didn’t let any of their players bully him or intimidate him."

Another person added: "The lad's the real deal. The time with Gillingham’s going to stand him in good stead, similar with Calmac at County during Ronnie’s time. Good luck to him and the team, will keep an eye out for them this year."

Another user, Tony Woodrow, wrote: "Looks like he will be one of the first names on the team sheet. Wind him up and off he goes for 95 minutes of non stop action. Great stuff and a real coup for the Gills to get him. The whole squad will benefit from that last 20 minutes, really gelling now. COYG."

"Superb for me. Looks a great signing. Evans pulled a cracker again. #Gills," posted Darren Chandler.
