Celtic: Chris Sutton hails ‘magician’ performance from Tom Rogic -Celtic News

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has hailed Tom Rogic’s performance in the Hoops’ massive 2-1 derby victory on Sunday, describing him as a ‘magician’.

The Lowdown: Famous win for Hoops

Ange Postecoglou’s side went into the trip to Ibrox three points clear of their arch-rivals at the top of the Premiership, highlighting how big a win would be.

Celtic achieved exactly that, going 1-0 down to Aaron Ramsey’s early strike but responding through goals from Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers, putting them firmly in pole position to win the title.

The Latest: Sutton lauds Rogic

Rogic’s all-round performance was superb even aside from his goal – as per Sofascore, he won five ground duels, made one tackle and completed 76% of his passes, ranking as Celtic’s second-best performer overall.

Taking to Twitter after the match, Sutton waxed lyrical over the Australian’s display, stating: “Nothing won yet. Daizen Maeda is a one man closing down machine. Rogic really is a magician. Carter Vickers and Starfelt immense.”

The Verdict: Magnificent servant

On a day of outstanding individual performances in green and white, Rogic was undoubtedly a standout figure, taking his goal with aplomb and helping Celtic to dominate the midfield battle.

The 29-year-old has been a great servant for the Hoops down the years, making a total of 265 appearances for the club, and he continues to be a key figure judging by the standards he set in such as crucial encounter on Sunday.

Rogic’s current Celtic deal expires at the end of next season and the Hoops should be looking to tie him down to a new contract in the near future or risk losing him on a free transfer eventually. He showed against Rangers just how important he is to Postecoglou’s team.
