Scott Brown of Celtic celebrates victory after the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium on September 23, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

“Brought into the side, he made a fantastic start to the match and looked in superb form,” Smith wrote about Rogic in The Sunday Post.

“He then dropped out of things in a manner that was close to alarming. But when the chance fell to him, he showed great composure to stick it away. So by the time he was taken off after the hour mark, his work was done.”

“Scott Brown once again dominated in central midfield, and his value to this Celtic side should not be underestimated,” Smith wrote about Brown.
