Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern will be delighted with comments made by one of their players and will be hoping that he will sign a new deal to remain at the club despite rejecting an offer.
Tom Rogic has refused to sign a new deal at Celtic Park amidst interest from England and abroad this summer, however, he has revealed that he is enjoying his time and believes he can continue to develop with the Bhoys.
The Hoops are keen to tie the 25-year-old midfielder to a new deal and have reopened negotiations with his agents but the Australia international has not given any indication about his long-term future.
Rogic has admitted he enjoys the responsibility he has when he plays in the green-and-white stripes, stating that it was “pretty cool”, whilst also claiming the club is an “amazing place”.
“Celtic the club is enormous. There is obviously a large history and anytime there is a match or anytime you pull on that jersey, you have a responsibility,” he told the Daily Record.
“There is a certain amount of pressure that comes with representing the club, but all players want to play at the highest level and for the biggest clubs.
“That’s what comes with it, so it’s pretty cool to represent the club.
“It’s an atmosphere that is right up there with the very best in the world.
“The players that have played here and the top players who have come to Celtic Park from around the world have only spoken incredibly highly of it.
“It’s an amazing place to play and you certainly feel the support when you are out here.
“It seems like a long time ago since I signed and it seems like I’ve been here forever, but I wouldn’t change anything.”
The Celtic fans in the Tavern will be pleased with the reports coming out that Rogic is happy at Celtic Park and will be hoping that the club can get a new contract in place for the midfielder as he remains a key player for Brendan Rodgers’ side. A hugely important figure if Celtic are going to undertake a European challenge, the punters propping up the bar hope Lawwell can work his magic.
