Title party seems like ideal platform for Rogic to get back to his best

It is fair to say that Tom Rogic hasn’t exactly pulled up any trees since he returned from injury. The mercurial midfielder has failed to make much of an impact in most of the games.

He was particularly poor in the recent 1-0 win over Kilmarnock. His performance was summed in an incident in the second-half when the Hoops were looking to take the lead.

He burst into the penalty box but instead of shooting, he tried to pass to Odsonne Edouard who failed to reach the ball.

It was no shock to see Rogic eventually substituted in the second-half of the game.

Such was the lack of performance by Rogic against Kilmarnock, that it would not be a shock if Rogic dropped to the bench for Saturday’s trip to Aberdeen.

Past record may provide start

However, when you consider that a point at Pittodrie guarantees the league title for the Hoops, he may be given a start.

Rogic has often been the man for the big occasion for the Hoops. When you factor in his excellent record against the Dons, there is an argument to be made for his starting the game.

It would not be a shock to anyone if Rogic popped up with the goal which wins the league title.

However, Lennon may decide that he has not earned his place in the side after some recent performances. Only time will tell.
