Celtic fans have reacted with pride on Twitter after Hoops playmaker Tom Rogic played an instrumental part in helping Australia qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals next summer.

The Socceroos recorded an impressive 3-1 victory over Honduras in the second leg of their World Cup play-off, after drawing the first leg 0-0.

Aston Villa midfielder Mile Jedinak scored all three goals, with two coming from the penalty spot to book their place on the plane to Russia ahead of next summer's tournament.

Rogic won the free-kick that saw Jedinak break the deadlock, with the help of a huge deflection, going on one of his mazy run's before being hauled to the ground by a bemused Honduras midfield.

The 24-year-old was eventually replaced by Rangers-linked manager Ante Postecoglou in the 77th minute with the scoreline at 2-0 after Jedinak had scored the first of his two penalties. Jedinak added another, before Honduras striker Alberth Elis scored a consolation.

Celtic fans reacted with delight for their number 18, with one fan even claiming that "Rogic is going to win the World Cup."
