Our regular round-up of how City's young on-loan players are faring around the world...

Patrick Roberts was close to grabbing his first goal in Celtic’s famous green and white hoops as the Bhoys secured a spot in the semi-finals of the Scottish FA Cup.

The winger played the last half-hour of his side’s 3-0 win over Greenock Morton and hit the post with a low shot following a mazy run. 

This followed on from his first full outing for Celtic in their 0-0 draw with Dundee last Wednesday, and now the Scottish Premiership leaders can look forward to a rare Old Firm derby with Rangers in the last four of the cup.

Heading south of the border, and Ian Lawlor has also had a busy week. The 21-year-old goalkeeper has been Bury’s first-choice between the sticks since moving to Gigg Lane in January, and he helped secure four points out of a possible six in League One. 

The Shakers beat Peterborough 3-1 in midweek, but they were held 0-0 by Bradford on Saturday. Ian has faced the Bantams three times - a replayed FA Cup tie that went to penalties and Saturday’s League One fixture – and did not concede any goals in regular play.

Going much further afield to Turkey, defender Jason Denayer (below) was substituted at half-time with his Galatasaray side trailing Istanbul Buyuk 0-2, watching the rest of what finished as a 3-3 draw from the bench.

Midfielder Anthony Caceres featured in the first 70 minutes of Melbourne City’s comfortable 3-0 win over Sydney FC.

Jack Byrne’s Cambuur are still in trouble, one place off the foot of the Dutch Eredivisie following their 3-1 defeat to Feyenoord, in which the Irish midfielder played all 90 minutes. 

Thomas Agyepong was a late substitute in FC Twente’s 2-1 loss at Den Haag, and in the division below striker Enes Unal played in all of NAC Breda’s 3-1 win over Achilles ’29 while midfielder Divine Naah was substituted after 66 minutes.
