Mc25 #9 – Tom Rogic

Mc25 #9 – Tom Rogic

With Kris Commons ageing and losing his place in the Celtic squad, Hoops fans were crying out for another player in the same mould, but players of that calibre don’t exactly grow on trees.

Step up, Tom Rogic.

The Australian has actually been at Celtic since 2013 and looked like another failed prospect until his sudden emergence as a first-team regular under Ronny Deila last season.

However, under Brendan Rodgers, the former Central Coast Mariners starlet has raised his game another level and has owned the playmaker role in behind Moussa Dembele or Leigh Griffiths.

Injuries have plagued the 24-year-old, however, and an occuring theme witnessed by fans is the sight of Rogic trudging off the park around the 60-70 minute mark.

Had the classy Aussie managed to overcome his fitness problems, then he would certainly have ranked higher in our Mc25, but the future certainly looks bright for fans of Celtic and Australia.

WHAT THEY SAID

“Have talked him up for years and delighted to see the plaudits come the way of this graceful Australian playmaker.”
