Lisa Robertson says Celts are moving in the right direction


NEW signing Lisa Robertson brings her extensive experience to Celtic, as she returns to Scottish football saying the club is moving in the right direction.

Robertson follows new manager Fran Alonso from the competitive English Championship. Leaving Durham mid-way through the season as they sit joint second, she believes that experience could be invaluable coming back north.  And having already enjoyed the club’s pre-season trip to Gran Canaria, she admitted it had been a dream start to life in the Hoops.

“It’s been a great start for me to come in, meet everyone, get to know all the girls and get some good training sessions in in the warm weather before the season starts,” she started.

“It was a great experience to go down and play in the Championship and I’m grateful for that opportunity because it is competitive and a really good standard. It was a lot more physical and faster, so hopefully coming back, I can bring those attributes up here.

“But I feel like this league will really improve from last year. I think there will be more teams competing as opposed to previous years when it has been one or two, so that will definitely bring more competitiveness.

“Celtic is a massive club, so right away you are attracted to the club, but after speaking to a few people I realised they are moving in the right direction and have massive potential to achieve the goals they are aiming for,” she said.

Robertson brings with her not only experience of winning silverware, but also the ability to shoot from range giving Alonso another weapon in his offensive arsenal.

“I scored two in the game against Bristol City, with one from the halfway line and this season I scored three in three weeks with all three from outside of the box, so it’s always great if you can add goals, but if I can’t do that I want contribute in other ways,” she explained.

Robertson comes to Celtic with an impressive medal haul from her time in her native Scotland. Winning the treble with Glasgow City in 2013 and racking up three Scottish Cups and four League Cups over two spells with Hibs, she’s no stranger to success, having also played in the Champions League for both sides. Additionally, she reached the quarter finals of the FA Cup last season, narrowly losing out 1-0 to Super League team Chelsea.
“Every time you go into a competition you want to go as far as you can, and with what Celtic are putting into the women’s game, you’d expect them to go and challenge in every completion that you enter, so hopefully I can bring the experience I have from playing in Scotland and the likes of the FA Cup and hopefully push on here,” she added.
