Celtic 25-year-old is by no means irreplaceable after reported rejection

The future of Celtic’s mercurial midfielder Tom Rogic is currently up in the air, as conflicted reports have emerged with regards to the player signing a new deal.
Firstly, Australian website The World Game claimed that the 25-year-old had ‘shocked’ the Hoops by turning down a contract extension offer.
However, this was countered by the Daily Record claiming that the Bhoys were ‘confident’ that the player would sign a new deal.
The playmaker is certainly a highly talented player, you only need to look at the winning goal he scored in the last seconds of the Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen last season for an example of that, and losing him would be a blow for the Bhoys.
However, Rogic has spent so much time at the club out with various injuries that if the player was determined not to sign a new deal then Brendan Rodgers would allow him to leave.
The Bhoys have a raft of players who can play in the attacking midfield role favoured by Rogic, with Scotland internationals Callum McGregor and Stuart Armstrong and recent signing from Chelsea Charly Musonda among the players who could replace him.
There is no doubt that a player of Rogic’s talents would be missed by the Hoops, but he is not irreplaceable.
