Rogic nets on Celtic debut

Tom Rogic made an impressive start to life with Celtic with a goal on debut.

Tom Rogic made an impressive start to life with Celtic with a goal on debut.

The 20-year old Australian midfielder, who joined from Central coast Mariners last month, scored inside ten minutes to help Celtics U20s to a 3-1 win over Hamilton at New Douglas Park.

Rogic played behind senior Hoops attacker Anthony Stokes and managed to get on the scoresheet early when he received a pass from Patrik Twardzik and neatly side-footed home.

Andy Ryan headed Hamilton level two minutes into the second half before Stokes made it 2-1 in the 57th minute when he swept home after Rogic’s initial shot was parried away before the match was wrapped up in injury-time by substitute Glen Eadie.

It was a stellar showing by Rogic, who could have had a couple of other goals, and he will now surely go into Neil Lennon’s calculations for the February 12 Champions League clash with Juventus at Parkhead.
