Celtic's Tom Rogic praises teammate Leigh Griffiths

The Celtic midfielder has been in fine form this season.

Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has been speaking to the club’s official website about his recent form and one of his Bhoys teammates.

The Australian international has now scored five goals and provided three assists in 17 appearances this season and after a slow start to life at Celtic Park he is now clearly an integral part of Ronny Deila’s side.

Rogic has been playing behind Scotland international Leigh Griffiths, who has been in sensational form recently, scoring 18 goals in just 25 appearances.

Speaking to celtifc.net, the 22-year-old said, “I am more confident but it’s easy for me when I’m playing behind Griff as he’s always adding goals and he’s on fire at the moment.”

The Australian’s latest goal came in Celtic’s 4-1 victory against Ross County at the weekend, a result that took Deila’s men six points clear of second-placed Hearts.

While Rogic and many of his Celtic teammates are currently on international duty, they will soon be back in domestic action with the Bhoys taking on Kilmarnock on 21 November; but before that Rogic will be focusing on the upcoming World Cup qualifying match against Kyrgyzstan.
