'Must be raging' - Celtic fans react as 24-year-old is benched for clash v Bayern

By James Black

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has named Callum McGregor in his starting XI to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday, leaving fans on Twitter to wonder why Tom Rogic is on the bench.

The Australia international is a big favourite among the Celtic fans are they are disappointed to see him missing out on a starting place against the Bavarian giants.

The Hoops face the Bundesliga champions knowing a win at Parkhead would be enough to virtually guarantee their place in the Europa League after Christmas.

Celtic confirmed the news in a Tweet posted on their official account.

Rogic, 24, was one of the players to have started against Killie and completed the entire 90 minutes, leaving him to be axed by Rodgers as he switches up his team for the European showdown.

Fans seem to think that the Aussie should be starting against Bayern, with one supporter claiming that the midfielder “must be raging” about being benched.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Australian has been in a patchy run of form recently but Celtic fans still obviously feel he can swing the game in their favour.

With Patrick Roberts missing out completely, Rogic will almost certainly come off the bench at some point in the second-half.

The Hoops lost 3-0 when the sides met in the Allianz Arena a few weeks ago and will be desperate to avoid a repeat of that scoreline.
