Celtic star signs new deal

Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has signed a new deal to keep him at Celtic Park until 2019, reports the club’s official website.

Rogic has signed a 3-year extension, with Brendan Rodgers a huge reason in the decision process, according to the midfielder:

“He has played a big role in me deciding to stay here, and you can tell he’s a top-class manager,” said the Australian international.

“I still feel I have a lot to give and I know that, under him, I can develop and contribute to the team’s success.”

Rogic has made 57 appearances for the Hoops and scored 10 goals since making his debut against Inverness Caley Thistle in February 2013, with 8 of those goals coming in last season’s Scottish Premiership.

The 23-year-old came off the bench in their 2-1 victory on the opening day of the season last week away at Hearts, but hasn’t been used in all of Celtic’s UEFA Champions League qualifying fixtures.

Rogic has also been a key player for Australia in their attempts to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and has scored 4 goals from just 6 qualifying games
