As reported by The Daily Mail, Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic is currently negotiating a new contract at the club, with his current deal due to expire in 2019.
That follows reports in his homeland that he has flatly rejected any new deal at Celtic Park, unimpressed with the terms offered and worried about lack of game time following his return from injury.
With his long-term future at the club clearly up in the air, the various reports have divided opinion amongst supporters with some believing the club should go all out to retain his services and others suggesting they shouldn’t be held to ransom considering his issues with injuries and fitness.
Fans of the Football FanCast Accy Show will know that we tend to recommend a Premier League outright win treble each week. Those fans might also be aware that this coupon has paid out on many occasions—including the last PL game week!

The Australian is one of Celtic’s best creative talents but has regularly missed large chunks of the different seasons due to injury, frustrating fans who are looking for more consistency out of him.
Fans took to Twitter to discuss his situation…
Sign the contract big boy, sign the contract @Tom_Rogic

Tom Rogic is a terrific player but unfortunately he has been injured more often than not through out his Celtic career, he should remember that before knocking back a new contract if it’s true .

Rogic is a great player but questions about his fitness would put a few teams off and doesn't exactly strengthen his negotiation position on a new contract,then again I could be wrong

The way some Celtic fans turn on players that don’t immediately sign the first contract that’s thrown in front of them is absolutely pathetic. First Armstrong now rogic. They are allowed to consider their careers

Why not just give rogic what he wants for his contract, time for Celtic to step up cause if not it's just gawny be the same every year, not willing to pay a player a bit extra for him to stay or go out and buy 6 million pound players like O'Neil did

I like Tam Rogic. He's a good player. But is he worth the ranch? Is he even worth stretching for?

Tom Rogic should be careful what he wishes for.
A decent player who only last 60 minutes in a game at most, Celtic have given him everything.
