After a dispiriting few weeks, Celtic fans will want to see their team bounce back to winning ways when they take on Ross County on Saturday.
One way that could happen is if the Hoops put on a good display of attacking football. A player that could help the Hoops achieve that goal is maverick midfielder Tom Rogic.
Unfortunately, due to a variety of injuries, Rogic has yet to start a league game for the Hoops this season. His only start so far this season has come in the Betfred Cup.
Seems fully fit once more
However, that could be all about to change. The Celtic Twitter account featured photos of various players training ahead of the Ross County game – one of the players pictured was Rogic.

Should Rogic make his first league start of the season, it will have come at a good time for the Hoops. Celtic are without the suspended Ryan Christie for the match against Ross County. Rogic can take his place as the attacking midfielder with an eye for goal.
Interestingly, Rogic has not had a run of games for the Hoops since Neil Lennon took over as Celtic’s caretaker manager in February.
Manager would love to have player available regularly
He has only 10 apperances since Lennon became Hoops boss due to a variety of injuries. Rogic is no doubt a player that Lennon would like to select on a regular basis.
However, that has not been possible up until now. Now Rogic seems to be fit, it will be interesting to see if Neil Lennon can find a place for him in his regular starting line-up.
With Ryan Christie out, Rogic at least has a chance to establish himself in the first-team. When Christie returns from suspension that could give the Hoops boss a dilemma other teams would be envious of. He could try to fit Rogic and Christie in the same side, which would give the team a very attacking outlook.
For the moment though, Celtic fans will just be pleased that one of their favourites could be on the verge of their first league start of the season.
