Football Insider verdict:
Sutton is right, this is brilliant business by Celtic and a huge boost ahead of the Scottish Cup final. Rangers and Steven Gerrard have been making all the headlines in the past few days, as they’re linked with a number of big-name signings, including Jermain Defoe and Dominic Solanke. But this is concrete and Rogic is a player who’s about to show off what he can do in the World Cup finals with Australia. Getting him tied down to a new contract means Celtic fans can relax and watch him over the summer without worrying that a good performance is going to lead to bids and the player having his head turned. Rogic has provided key goals at the right times this season, despite missing a load of games through injury. He loves playing against Rangers – four of his nine goals came in Old Firm games, and he’ll be back to haunt Rangers again now for the next five years.
