Celtic fans are in love with Tom Rogic again after another superb performance for the Bhoys this afternoon.

Rogic has been one of the notable improved players under new manager Ange Postecoglou in recent weeks.

He looks refreshed, energised and ready to terrorise defences in Scotland again. More than that, his effort levels are huge, helping Celtic aggressively press in the opposition half.

It’s exciting to see him come from nowhere to take the team by storm again. Under Neil Lennon, he constantly looked on the brink of an exit in a best-case scenario. For long periods he was simply a forgotten figure. Now though, it’s hard to imagine this team without him.

His worth was on all full display against Hearts in the Scottish League Cup today. The Bhoys ran out 3-2 winners and Rogic was key, especially in the first half.

Paradise was roaring as the high-intensity Celts rocked Hearts for 45 full minutes. The match was more even after the interval, but Celtic never looked at risk of not progressing to the quarter-finals.

Rogic was eventually substituted off in the 73rd minute, and rested for the AZ Alkmaar clash, to an ovation from the Celtic support.

I can’t wait to see where his career goes from here. He could well be a massive player for us this season. The early signs are good.

These fans have taken to social media today to share their thoughts on his performance…
