'Masterclass', 'Our best' - Celtic fans rave about one player in defeat to Zenit
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Tom Rogic for his performance in the 3-0 defeat to Zenit St Petersburg in Russia on Wednesday night as the Bhoys crashed out of the Europa League.
Rogic, 25, was introduced off the bench by manager Brendan Rodgers at half-time in a bid to get the Hoops back in the game after a disappointing 45 minutes.
The Australia international has an instant impact for the Scottish champions as he fired their first shot at goal just minutes after entering the pitch at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.
Fans were very happy with Rodgers’ decision to throw the playmaker into the action and it was notable in the second-half as Celtic started to have more of a foothold in Zenit’s half.
Supporters were loving Rogic’s performance, with one saying that it was a “masterclass” by the Aussie.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Good to see, big Tam @Tom_Rogic comes on and puts in a range finder.
