Ronny Deila says he wants to keep Tom Rogic at Celtic

Celtic manager Ronny Deila suggests that Tom Rogic will be given a new contract.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he wants attacking midfielder Tom Rogic to remain at the club.

Rogic has been on the books of Celtic until 2013 and has a contract until the summer of 2017. Deila rates the Australia international highly and wants him to sign a new contract.

“He is definitely one of the players that we would like to keep and we are working towards that just now,” the Celtic boss told The Glasgow Evening Times about Rogic.

“We talk all the time and we are always looking to work on the squad. He is one of the players that we would like to tie up on a long-term deal.

“He’s very important in our team. He has a lovely technique, he has innovation and is creative. The technical aspect he has is the top level.”

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 58 points from 25 matches.

The Glasgow giants are three points clear of Aberdeen, who are currently second in the standings and are the Bhoys’ only title contenders.

The Bhoys have the strongest squad in Scotland and are favourites to win the Scottish Premiership title this season.

Celtic’s performances and results in recent weeks have been disappointing, but fans will hope that Deila’s side can go on a winning run soon.

The Glasgow giants will return to action next weekend when they take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.
