Celtic can land ideal Tom Rogic replacement with Christopher Scott

Celtic brought an end to their 2021/22 SPFL season in style on Saturday by beating Motherwell 6-0 at Parkhead.

The Hoops were officially announced as league champions after their 1-1 draw against Dundee United last week, leaving Ange Postecoglou with his first league title in his debut campaign in charge of the Hoops.

It was also revealed during the past week that Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton will be waving goodbye to the Parkhead club after nearly ten years of service together.

Rogic played a rather big part in Celtic’s latest title win by scoring six goals and delivering six assists in 27 league appearances.

Since arriving at Paradise back in January 2013, the Australian has gone on to make 272 appearances for the Hoops across all competitions.

In those appearances, the 29-year-old has scored 46 goals, delivered 49 assists and won numerous trophies in the process.

Taking all of this into account, the club will need to find a suitable replacement for their long-serving midfielder.

With that in mind, one figure that the Hoops have been linked with who could go on to become an ideal replacement for Rogic is Christopher Scott.

Earlier this year, it was claimed by Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg on Twitter that the Bayern Munich youngster had been in talks with the Parkhead club over a potential summer transfer move.

Will Tom Rogic be a big miss for Celtic?

After working his way through Bayer Leverkusen’s youth ranks, the midfielder joined Bayern’s U19 squad during the 2020 January transfer window.

Throughout his short career, the 19-year-old has scored 44 goals and provided 17 assists in 115 appearances.

This highlights how much of a knack for scoring and providing goals he has, in a similar vein to Rogic during his time at Celtic Park.

This is backed up by Bhoys Analytics on Twitter who said that Scott “generates a lot of threat from [his] finishing and creativity.”

With Scott’s current contract at Bayern set to expire at the end of June, this possibility of signing the 19-year-old on a free transfer is something that Celtic should be all over this summer.

From a financial point of view, it could be a great business deal for the hierarchy to complete as well as being a potentially great footballing investment if Postecoglou can form the Bayern youngster into a full-fledged senior player at Celtic.
