Tom Rogic has rejected a new contract offer at Celtic and is prepared to leave after the World Cup in the summer, according to a report – and some fans are distraught at the news.
The World Outlet, an Australian media outlet, claims that there are a number of factors behind his rejection of new terms.
Rogic is reportedly unhappy with the terms of the new offer but is also concerned at his lack of game time.
The third factor is the arrival of Charly Musonda, on loan from Chelsea.
The 25-year-old, who joined Celtic in 2013 has struggled with fitness this season, and has only made 12 Premiership appearances for Brendan Rodgers this season.
He didn’t start the 3-0 defeat to Zenit in the Europa League on Thursday night but came on at half time and looked the best player on the pitch for Celtic in the second period.
One fan said that he “genuinely might cry” if Rogic does leave, while another was adamant that if Rogic goes “I go”.
However, others stated that he couldn’t stay fit anyway.
Here are the best reactions to the reports that Rogic has rejected a new contract:
I genuinely might cry if Rogic leaves us

If Tom Rogic leaves Celtic I will break down mentally and physically.

Surely this stuff about rogic wanting to leave is false?

Wouldn't be fussed at all if Rogic goes this summer. He's always hurt. Can't even get half a season out of him nevermind a full one.

Contract negotiations are a game of chess and I'd leave that to lawell. Players leave all the time and our club goes on. If Rogic wants to go fair play to him, If he wants to stay then I hope he stays fit for longer HH pic.twitter.com/0KwbQwzV5e

I really hope Rogic is not expecting to be one of our highest paid players, the guy is never fit

Had a lad asking me how have we gotten worse this season and now seeing people say Rogic should go. Unsurprisingly these are all the same people that recycle the same "sevco" jokes over and over again and call the huns obsessed when their own tl is full of rangers
