Can Tom Rogic help Celtic chances by starring for Australia?

Celtic playmaker Tom Rogic has linked up with Australia for the international break and needs to try impress his domestic manager Brendan Rodgers at the same time.

The 25-year-old is part of his nation’s squad for the upcoming fixtures against Kuwait and South Korea over the next two weeks.

He is an attacking midfielder that already has 40 caps under his belt and it would do him the world of good if he can deliver an international masterclass to boost his domestic prospects.

Rogic is a creative playmaker that hasn’t quite hit top form yet this season and endured spells in and out of the team.

Rogic needs to try recreate his weekend’s form for his country and prove to Rodgers he deserves a permanent berth in the starting XI.

The left-footed ace has managed only two goals in 14 Celtic appearances this campaign, but can perform at a much higher standard if he hits top form.

Celtic have three colossal fixtures against Hibernian, RB Leipzig and Hearts when they return to action, which is why Rogic needs to ensure he is right in the manager’s plans for those games.
