Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has admitted he was ‘quitely confident’ that Ange Postecoglou would be a success in Glasgow.

The 56-year old arrived with a lot of doubters but has since changed the club’s fortunes, sitting six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership and having delivered the Premier Sports cup.

Not many would have foreseen the incredible turnaround that Postecoglou has overseen. But, Tom Rogic was one of the few who knew what the former Socceroos boss was capable of.

Speaking about the praise Postecoglou has received since his arrival, Rogic said (Scottish Daily Express): “Football is a funny game, so it’s not going to always work out as you plan.

“Having worked with him, I knew the way he kinda goes about his management style.

“I was – I would say – quietly confident that he would be a success here. I know it’s easy to say that now.

“I’m not a young player now, I’m quite experienced, and I would say he’s a top manager.

“It’s nice to see him get the recognition he deserves, and long may it continue.”

Not only has it been a brilliant turnaround for Celtic, but also for Tom Rogic.

At one stage last year, it looked as though the 28-year olds career at Parkhead would have been coming to an unfortunate end.

After suffering from injuries, the midfielder was almost sold to a club in Qatar under Neil Lennon. But thankfully, the move didn’t go through.

Celtic are now reaping the rewards of that under Ange, and Rogic is a prime example of the great work he has done so far.

Having worked with one another on Australian international duty, there was a feeling if anyone were to get the best out of Rogic again, it would be Ange.

And, of course, Rogic had confidence in that, going on to play a crucial role in the side this season.

The Celtic boss now has the whole Hoops’ support on board with this journey, and it may just be the start of a great few years under his stewardship.
