Tom Rogic says he is hoping to force his way into Celtic’s starting line-up for the Scottish Cup.

The 20-year old Australian attacking midfielder has made just three starts for a total of six appearances for the Hoops since his January move from Central Coast Mariners but is gunning for a midfield berth when they meet Hibernian at Hampden Park on May 26.

“You always want to play, so you’ve got to be ready to take your chance,” said Rogic who could be used in place of suspended pair Victor Wanyama and Beram Kayal and injured skipper Scott Brown.

“I’ve just been working hard at training and hopefully I’ll get a bit more game time.

“Every game’s important when you’re playing at a club like Celtic. You’re expected to win every game, so it’s important standards don’t drop and you keep performing.

“Can I push for a Cup Final place? Anything’s possible and I will do whatever I can in training and in the matches to come to hopefully try and earn a spot in the team.”
