The future of Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic might still be in doubt, but the 25-year-old could still have a big part to play for the rest of the season, including the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final versus Rangers.
The Australian midfielder’s contract with the Hoops runs out at the end of next season, and reports from Australia claimed that Rogic had turned down the chance to sign a new deal with the Hoops, which Brendan Rodgers denied.
The player has such qualities that Hoops fans would love him to stay, and their ideal scenario would be that he dominates the semi-final then signs a new deal with the club.
At the moment the former seems far more likely than the latter, as Rogic has made a big impact in Old Firm games this season.
He scored the opening goal with a fine effort in the Hoops’ 2-0 win at Ibrox in September, and scored the vital equaliser in the 3-2 win at Ibrox last month with a superb curling effort which gave Wes Foderingham no chance.
If the Hoops are to reach the Scottish Cup Final for the second year running, then Rogic could play a huge part in the Hoops getting there, it is just unfortunate that his future is yet to be decided and he could leave the Hoops in the summer.
In other Celtic news, Moussa Dembele seems likely to start the semi-final
