Tom Rogic signs new five year deal with Celtic

Celtic were given a massive boost ahead of the Scottish Cup Final this weekend after Tom Rogic signed a new five year deal, which will see the Aussie remain at the club until 2023.

The 25-year-old has been an integral part of Celtic's midfield and has attracted interest from the English Premier League, but has ended speculation about his future putting pen to paper on a five year deal today.

Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Rogic said: “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.

“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.”

He added: “When you win a single trophy it's something very special so to have won as many as I have here is another reason why I love it here and why I feel very privileged to represent the club.

“The Scottish Cup final goal last season was a pretty special moment that I think will be hard to top. I’ve played in a lot of big games here at this club and to have contributed a small part to that makes me very proud.

“I’ll keep working as hard as I can to hopefully create more in the future.”

Rogic signed for Celtic back in January 2013 from Australian side Central Coast Mariners, making his debut against Inverness the following month.

He was loaned out to Melbourne Victory in January 2014 to secure first team experience before returning to Celtic in the summer.

He established himself as a first team regular in season 2015-16, making 39 appearances for Celtic scoring 10 goals.

Rogic scored a last gasp winning goal in last season's Scottish Cup Final to secure the domestic treble for Brendan Rodgers' side.
