25-year-old would be the toughest to replace as transfer exit claims mount up at Celtic


With Celtic only having one league game left this season followed by the Scottish Cup Final, attention will quickly turn to the players set to come in and out of the Scottish Premiership winners, in what is sure to be yet another busy summer.

Of the players that seem likely to leave, Patrick Roberts and Stuart Armstrong would both be missed, but by far the biggest loss would be Australian midfielder Tom Rogic.

The 25-year-old has had yet another great season for the Hoops, and has recently added some vital goals to his repertoire of talents.

His ability to find space in the middle of the park is unmatched, and his first touch is better of any player that plays in the Scottish Premiership.

The worry is that he has yet to agree a new deal with the club, with his contract set to run out at the end of next season, and rather ominously enough Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers recently claimed, as reported by The Telegraph, that he was ‘relaxed’ about Rogic’s situation, which most fans are certainly not.

If he has a good World Cup for Australia in the summer, there is a real danger that a club could swoop in and make a move for the player, and due to his contract situation if the time was right the Hoops would probably sell.

However, if the Bhoys were to agree a deal with Rogic it would give the Bhoys a huge boost going into next season, only time will tell but it looks like being a nervous summer with regards to the Australian and the Hoops.
