Having only featured in 15 of Celtic’s 26 Premiership fixtures prior to the St Mirren match, over which the 28-year-old provided three assists and averaged a disappointing WhoScored match rating of 6.58 – ranking him as the club’s 11th-worst performer in the Scottish top flight, Rogic was perhaps a surprise inclusion in Neil Lennon’s starting XI on Wednesday evening.
However, after giving Celtic the lead with a cracking finish in just the 16th minute of the match, fans of Celtic flocked to Twitter to heap praise on the £1.58 million-rated Australian, with many stating their belief that the midfielder is back to his best.
So, what exactly did these Celtic fans have to say about Tom Rogic’s first-half performance against St Mirren?
“He’d for sure be our best player if he was better physically. Wand of a left foot.”
“Tom Rogic what a man!”
“Tam Rogic you big beautiful man”
“Rogic celebrated that goal like he just opened a can of Fosters and found it to be both warm and flat.”
“Flash of much-needed quality from Rogic“
“Rogic taking the ball on the back foot is a different animal. Unreal man”
“That was a textbook Rogic goal. The second he rolls the defender you just knew where it was going.”
“Brilliant from Rogic”
“Vintage Tam Rogic… Pick it out“
“I think Rogic might be back.”
“Bit of magic from Rogic, creates the space for himself and finishes brilliantly”
“Tam Rogic back to his best“
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Celtic fans have been delighted with the display of Rogic thus far, with some praising the midfielder’s finished, while others suggested that the 28-year-old could be getting back to his best form.
