Central Coast young gun Rogic keen to grab Celtic chance

Central Coast Mariners youngster Tomas Rogic is planning to grab his Celtic opportunity with both hands.

The 20-year old playmaker has arrived in Marbella to train with the Hoops during their winter break and hopes to make an impression on manager Neil Lennon after his proposed move to Reading fell over.

"It's been crazy. I only found out on Tuesday I was going to Marbella to meet up with Celtic," said the recently-capped Socceroo.

"Not long ago they beat Barcelona, now I'm on my way to train with them so it's a bit of a whirlwind.

"I'll learn a lot from them whatever happens and it's a really exciting opportunity for me.

"What I do know is I have to keep working hard and stay level-headed.

"None of these chances would have come without doing that and it's the only way to make the most of what might come up from now on.

"The future has to be week by week. I'd be getting ahead of myself if I was thinking about a year or five years down the track and trying to set too many goals.

"There was the offer from Reading last week, now Celtic have come in, so it doesn't pay to try to anticipate too much."
