The injury jinx has struck Celtic once more.

Brendan Rodgers disclosed that Tom Rogic would be out of action for up to six weeks with a knee injury.

He made the revelation on the Celtic Twitter account.

The Australian joins the likes of Filip Benkovic and Dedryck Boyata on the sidelines.

The news of this latest injury will be a real sickener to Celtic fans.

Rogic hasn’t played for the Hoops since December and missed the 1-0 loss to Rangers due to international duty.

He might have made a difference in that game.

Some of his best performances for Celtic have been in games against Rangers.

He will now miss the upcoming Europa League clash with Valencia and a host of important league games.

Rodgers must be thankful that he brought in so many forward thinking players in the transfer window following the news of Rogic’s injury.

The likes of Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah might not play in Rogic’s position, but they are more than capable of chipping in with a goal or two if required.

Rogic’s natural talent will be missed though, his guile and skill is at times unmatched in the Scottish Premiership.

Hopefully Rogic’s injury isn’t as severe as first thought, and he will surely still have a role to play as Celtic aim to clinch their eighth title in a row.
