The Socceroo who can give Celtic reason to be cheerful

It was a disappointing week for Celtic, but a piece of January transfer business is giving them reason to be cheerful.

Tom Rogic started his Celtic career in thrilling fashion winning Man of the Match against Inverness in their 1-1 draw.

There have been some strong criticisms especially around Australia over the move, with the fear this could harm Tom’s career severely, however I believe the move to the Scottish giants will be beneficial.

Similarly to Victor Wanyama, as whilst playing at a step up, it allows Rogic to play regularly and earn a big move, possibly to the Premier League. It's easy to have confidence he will make it.

Rogic is a tricky player and is similar to Eden Hazard as he is capable of finishing beautifully and creating countless goals. He comes across with the perfect blend of confidence but is humble at the same time.

Having seen him play quite often in Australia and witnessing him live is a treat and he is a crowd pleaser. His sensational foot skills and close control derive from his time playing futsal – which he played until the age of 18 – making the “Futsalroos” squad in 2010.

During his time in the A-league Rogic played 28 games and scored 5 goals, creating many goals. He has already been capped by the Socceroos 4 times already.

Hopefully, Tom Rogic can make a point in Europe that Whilst the A-League is not the most compettetive league, it harbours some great talents and Australian football deserves to be taken seriously.

Here's a look at Rogic in action...
