Tom Rogic will make his final appearance for Celtic tomorrow as the Australian midfielder ends his nine-and-a-half stay at Paradise. The club announced that the 29-year-old would leave the club this summer along with Nir Bitton.
Celtic signed the relatively unknown Australian starlet Tom Rogic from Central Coast Mariners. In that time, Rogic has been an integral part of the Quadruple Treble sides and he has produced some incredible moments in recent years, his last-minute winner at Killie, or Motherwell, or against Aberdeen in the 2017 Scottish Cup Final or the equaliser at Ibrox this season as we won 2-1.
Time for the onions to be cut again. 🧙♂️🪄🇦🇺 https://t.co/wHBqL9QrBG

Rogic really was big for us this season.
Upped his fitness levels in August, changed the game at Pittodrie in October that we had to win with his ball to Montgomery, dragged us through December and bossed it at Ibrox.
Leaves on such a high. Tomorrow will be class for him. 👍

The Wizard of Oz was a big game player, he was able to turn games with a flick of the switch. This season especially, he has been brilliant. His late assist in Dingwall stands out. The player was able to make a decision about his future and it is telling that Celtic have respected this wish as the player looks to take his next step after Paradise.
Rogic was signed for just $400k Australian dollars and has proven to be priceless, conjuring up some incredible moments in his time with the club. Tam has scored 44 times and assisted 47 times in his time at the club but brings so much to the team, bringing the best out in his teammates.
Rogic vs Rangers (A) – Beautiful Sunday. After a shaky start, McGregor grabs the game by the scruff of the neck and our fist attack ends in a goal via the Wizard of Oz. Killed the atmosphere inside Ibrox and set the tone for the game. Huge goal. pic.twitter.com/675ISDq1E5

He will leave Celtic tomorrow with a full Paradise toasting him, as well as his teammates, for their service to the club. All the best to Rogic for the future, even if it is a sore one to see a player of his quality leave. Both players will always be welcome back at Paradise and it is fitting that both leave the club as champions.
