It was one of the most bizarre signings in the free agents market this summer, and a lot of folks were shocked when Robert ended up signing with Airdrie
Montpellier highly regarded him, and they have a good record in the first team of young players, but he wanted to try his luck elsewhere in search of a normal starting place.
He was linked with plenty of major clubs, but he eventually decided to play for Airdrie United. It seems like he made a wise decision.
It also looks like the attention from Celtic is still around, with The Sun claiming that he’s now expected to to practice with them ahead of a transfer this summer.
The dynamic Sheffield Wednesday youngster Liam Shaw has already signed a deal for next season, and it now seems Robert may be signed as well if he entertains.
League One is officially closed down so that frees him up to effectively go on probation with Celtic, though he’s under contract until 2022 so Airdrie can try to get a fair fee for him as well.
He has impressed this season with his set piece abilities and his potential is not surprising from his dad, there is much more to his game.
He prefers to play on either flank, and it is important to keep an eye on any trips from training over the next couple of weeks to see how he sticks out.
