The paper report that Neil Lennon later confirmed he is back in the fold, although will not feature in the UEFA Europa League play-off.

Exactly how far away from first-team action he is remains to be seen. However, the fact he is closing in on an appearance is a major boost to Lennon's squad.

Rogic has not featured since the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts in May and missed the club's pre-season preparations in Austria.

 

Although plagued by fitness and injury issues throughout his time at Celtic, the player remains a key talent when on top form and has a serious ability to unlock opposition defences.

He's also a player with a knack for scoring dramatic goals in the biggest matches.

It's unlikely any Celtic supporter will forget his unbelievable last minute winning goal in 2017's Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen.
