Kenny Dalglish has told the Sunday Post that Celtic playmaker Tom Rogic is becoming one of the finest playmakers in British football, prior to his display at Murrayfield on Sunday afternoon.

Rogic, 25, as instrumental throughout the win over Craig Levein's Hearts, connecting the midfield and the attack throughout despite the Hoops missing influential figures such as Scott Brown, Dedryck Boyata and Leigh Griffiths.

 

Before the match, Celtic legend Dalglish claimed that the Australia international is quickly establishing himself up there with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Christian Eriksen and more.

"He is maturing into one of the finest players in the UK in the role he plays just off the main striker," Dalglish said. "If he is fit, he brings so much more quality to the Hoops."
