Celtic thrashed St Johnstone 6-0 yesterday and James Forrest was rightly handed the plaudits for his four-goal display. Yet, Tom Rogic’s performance was another bright spark.
But the unsung hero in yesterday’s win was Tom Rogic.
The Australia international has been out of form this season. But he was back to his best against St Johnstone yesterday afternoon.
Rogic had a hand in four of Celtic’s six goals. And Celtic fans are delighted to see him back in form.
The 25-year-old has been such a vital part of Celtic’s plans for the last couple of seasons.
But since returning from the World Cup and signing a new long-term contract, he hasn’t quite been the same.
Rogic was even dropped recently, with Brendan Rodgers trialling other players in the number 10 role.
However, Rogic looks to have earned his starting spot back after he played a major role in unpicking the St Johnstone defence on numerous occasions.
Forrest scored four goals and therefore rightly took most of the plaudits. But fans also took to social media to talk about Rogic.
And this is how they reacted to his display.
