Celtic attacker Tom Rogic has revealed that both he and the club are desperate to keep the Hoops’ current, unprecedented run of success going.
Despite winning back to back domestic trebles, Rogic has warned the rest of Scottish football that Brendan Rodgers won’t let the Hoops slack off for even a minute, despite their ongoing domination of the Scottish domestic game.
“We can’t rest after last season and think we’ve achieved everything. We’ve proven this season, with the trophies that we’ve already won, that it’s relentless, it does continue. There’s always going to be a next trophy” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“The manager says there are no small gains when you play for this football club. You have a responsibility every time you go out on the pitch to represent the club as best you can.
“I certainly have the hunger and desire in me to win more trophies.”
Rogic recently signed a new long-term deal with the Hoops and established himself as a key part of the team which won the treble for the second season in a row.
Football Insider verdict
Rogic’s words should send fear into the rest of Scottish football. There will be no slacking off by the Hoops in their pursuit of trophies. The Bhoys seem to be playing to a new standard since Brendan Rodgers took over as manager, which hasn’t been seen for a long time in Scotland. The motivation has to be the fear of suffering a defeat. When you play for Celtic – and Rangers – any defeat could quickly be turned into a crisis. Rodgers knows that he can’t allow that to happen, it has overwhelmed too many managers in Scotland in the past. So far however, he has managed to avoid notable defeats as Hoops boss and has managed to keep the good results going. In no small part thanks to players like Rogic, who has a skillset which very few in Scottish football are able to match. The fact that he stayed a new long-term deal with the Bhoys is testament to Rodgers and the will to win he gives the side.
