Many Hoops fans seemed to have lost hope that Rogic would stay with the Bhoys, as his contract was due to run out at the end of next season, and there were fears that the Bhoys would have to cash in on the player if he wan’t willing to sign a new deal.
All those fears are gone however, and the player is set to be a key man for the Hoops for many years to come.
Rogic’s qualities are unmatched at this level – his ability to find space and play the key ball in unrivalled in Scottish football.
When he returns from the World Cup in Russia in the summer, he is sure to be a big player for the Hoops in their Champions League qualifiers, and there is a more than decent chance his knack of scoring big goals in big games could help the Hoops achieve their goal of making the incredibly lucrative Champions League group stages for the third season in a row.
It’s a fantastic deal and one that’s flown under the radar with all the media training their lenses on Steven Gerrard and Rangers.
How they would love for a man like Rogic to sign with them.
