Departing Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has been nominated for the Australian PFA men’s player of the year award for 2022.

The 29-year old played a crucial role in Ange Postecoglou’s side, which went on to deliver a league and cup double this season.

Rogic played 50 games, scoring six goals and assisting a further 10, as the Socceroos internationalist got back to his very best in a Celtic shirt.

Leo Lacroix, Florin Berenguer and Mitch Langerak have also all been nominated.

After a stuttering few years due to injury, not many Celtic fans could have predicted such an incredible turnaround in the attacking midfielder’s career at Parkhead.

However, the arrival of Postecoglou – who Rogic had worked with previously for his international side – gave him a new burst of life in the Green and White Hoops.

His performances have also seen him awarded a nomination for the Australian PFA player of the year award, which includes other players playing abroad and back home in Rogic’s homeland.

This is also Rogic’s second player of the year award nomination of the season, having been part of the final four nominees for the same award in Scotland.

Sadly, Celtic fans said their final goodbyes last weekend to the Aussie man who confirmed he would be moving on, in an emotional send-off on trophy day at Celtic Park.

Rogic has created many special memories during his time in Glasgow, and you will struggle to find a better highlight reel of goals for any departing player.

Hopefully, he is able to finish off his final season at Celtic with another high by winning this award. It would only add to the ever-growing trophy cabinet in the Rogic household.
