“I couldn’t be happier” – Settled Tom Rogic delights in new Celtic deal


Tom Rogic is eyeing more success with Celtic after he signed a long-term five-year contract extension with the Scottish champions.

Rogic had one season remaining on his current deal and had been linked with moves elsewhere, but committed his future to the Glasgow club.

Rogic, 25, netted four goals and registered four assists in what was an injury-interrupted campaign personally, but ended with Celtic’s seventh-straight title.

The attacking-midfielder, who will likely feature at the World Cup in Russia with the Socceroos, wants more success in green and white.

Rogic said he is feeling settled after five years at Celtic.

“I feel great to have signed a new contract. I’m very proud and honoured to be able to commit my future to the club,” he told celticfc.net.

“I enjoy playing regular football here. I’m working under a top class manager and to play my club football here is something that’s very special to me so I couldn’t be happier to have signed a new contract.

“The support here is very special and sometimes it’s hard to describe.

“To feel so loved and wanted by the fans is all a player can really ask for.

“It’s my job and the players’ job to repay that.

“Now that my future’s sorted I can focus completely on playing football and giving everything I have for the club, as I have done for the past five years.”

Before Russia, Celtic will contest the Scottish Cup final against Motherwell at Hampden Park on Saturday.
