Tom Rogic set to reject new Celtic deal as he pushes for exit – reports

Tom Rogic - Celtic - Football Weeks

Just few hours after Celtic Europa League disappointment, the club have beend dealt with a further blow according to reports coming Australia.

Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has just 15 months left on his current deal with Celtic, and has reported turned down a new contract according to Aussie news outlet, SBS.

The 25-year-old has been injured since the past month with a knee injury, and has come one as a substitute for Rodgers’ side in the last two matches.

Despite the brilliant talent he possesses, there’ve been questions over his fitness and durability to last a 90-minute high-pressure game under Brendan Rodgers.

Rogic is reportedly unhappy with the terms of his new contract, coupled with the arrival of Charly Musonda on an 18-month loan which could limit his playing time.

After an impressive run of form last season, capped off by securing Celtic’s famous treble last May with the winning goal over Aberdeen in the Scottish cup final – Rogic appears to be considering his future in Glasgow.

With the World Cup less than four months away, the Aussie playmaker will be looking to get back to his best ahead of his return to Russia with the national side.

This season Rogic has scored four goals and provided seven assists in 29 appearances.
