Spotted: Major Celtic boost as 25-yr-old returns to training ahead of schedule
Celtic have been handed a major boost as they head into the second-half of the season with the news that Tom Rogic has returned to first-team training.
Brendan Rodgers recently claimed that the 25-year-old could be out until March with an ankle injury, but he has been spotted in training with his team-mates ahead of schedule.
The news was revealed by the Hoops on their official Twitter account on Monday as the team trained for the upcoming game against Partick Thistle.
“Tom Rogic’s back on the training pitch!”

Rogic hasn’t featured for the Bhoys since he played 45 minutes against Anderlecht in the last Champions League group stage in December and was taken off injured at half-time.
The Australian has scored four goals this season, including the opening goal in the 2-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox in September.
His most memorable moment at the club so far came in May when his last minute winner in the Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen clinched the Bhoys’ first domestic treble since 2001.
Rogic won’t be involved in Celtic’s next game, as the Bhoys return to league duty with a Glasgow derby against Partick Thistle at Firhill on Tuesday night.
The Hoops will be looking to maintain their eight point lead over Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
