Celtic attacking midfielder Tom Rogic has become the club’s “game-changer” under the management of Ange Postecoglou, according to Charlie Nicholas.
Writing in his column for the Daily Express, Nicholas named the Australian playmaker in his team of the season so far, hailing the 29-year-old for being able to change the course of a match with his ability:
“He has always had great quality but since Ange Postecoglou has come in, he has been bang on it consistently. Before, you would only get an hour or so out of him but now he is somebody Celtic can rely on and turn to. David Turnbull was also in with a shout but Rogic is a game-changer and gets the nod.”
Rogic has been extremely impressive this season. His two assists in the 3-1 win over St Johnstone on Boxing Day means that he has now been involved in 11 goals all told (scoring three and assisting eight).
The midfielder appears to have got over the injury problems that have plagued him in recent seasons, which is quite ironic considering how many other players in the squad have suffered their own fitness issues this campaign.
Hopefully, Rogic and most of his teammates will be available when the Hoops return to action against Hibernian next month after the winter break.
