Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will have to wait even longer to see Tom Rogic back in action, as his eagerly anticipated return to action has been delayed by the snow.
Rogic was due to play in a develpomental game this evening versus Motherwell to test his fitness ahead of the Zenit fixture on thursday.
However, the Daily Record report that this fixture has had to be cancelled due to severe weather conditions, as the pitch remains covered in snow.
The Australian international has not featured for the Hoops in over two months, after suffering a serious knee injury, however he was on the bench for Celtic’s 3-2 win over Partick Thistle.
The 25-year-old had featured heavily under Brendan Rodgers until his injury, appearing in 31 games for the Hoops in all competitions, and scoring four goals.
The fact that he is nearing a return to match fitness is a huge boost for Celtic, as the Hoops packed schedule continues due to multiple cup matches.
However, it is unlikely that Rogic will feature too heavily in the fixture against Zenit, as Rodgers has not had the chance to survey his match sharpness since returning from injury.
