The picture was a spoof of the Will Ferrell film Step Brothers with Roberts and Tierney’s faces photoshopped onto the movie poster. Brown captioned the post: “Great to have @patrick_Roberts back on a season long loan. @kierantierney hasn’t taking the smile off his face in last few hours”.

The City loanee replied asking for Brown to add him to the Celtic players’ group chat on messaging service Whatsapp.
