Tom Rogic explains why he chose Celtic and says who is the club's best player

Having recently returned from injury, the Celtic player has been speaking about all manner of things relating to the club.

Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has taken part in a Q&A session for the club’s official Twitter account, during which he revealed – among other things – who he feels is the Bhoys’ best player and why he chose a move to Scotland back in 2013.

Rogic moved from Australian club Central Coast Mariners for a fee in the region of £400,000 but two-and-a-half years into a four-and-a-half-year contract the 22-year-old has only played 15 times for Celtic.

He played eight times for the Bhoys in his debut season, providing an assists on his debut against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, but the following year he failed to have much impact and was sent on loan to Melbourne Victory where he turned out 11 times.

This season injuries have meant he has not enjoyed any first-team football, although he has featured for Stevie Frail’s under-20 side, and he will no doubt be hoping to kick-start his career next month.

That will be tough but he is still young enough to put his problems behind him and prove to manager Ronny Deila that he has a future at Celtic.

When asked why he chose the club in the first place, Rogic replied, “Celtic is a massive club with a great support and I was proud to join a great club like this.”

That pride could still see him make an impact if he can maintain his fitness, as Deila’s side will have a lot of football ahead of them especially with the qualifying stages of the Champions League just round the corner.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown will be integral once again, and he is the player Rogic highlighted when asked who the best is that he has played with so far.

“There’s a few but I’d probably say Broony is the best I’ve played with,” Rogic said, and while he may never have the Celtic career enjoyed by his illustrious teammate, he could yet have a significant impact on the field.
