Celtic may have been delighted with the business they conducted in the January transfer market, however, they will have been rocked with some of the news to come out of the club.
Speaking in his press conference, via the club’s official Twitter handle, Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Tom Rogic could be out for up to six weeks.
BR on Tom Rogic: “Unfortunately, he will be out for up to six weeks. He’s seen a knee specialist in London but we’ll be without him for a while.”

The Australia international has been dealing with a knee injury and has had to see a specialist in London about the problem.
The 26-year-old injured it whilst on international duty in the Asian Cup and will now require surgery to fix the problem.
Rogic has been an influential member of the Celtic team since arriving at the club in 2013 and has played a key role for Rodgers’ side over the years.
He will now join the likes of Filip Benkovic and Dedryck Boyata on the sidelines, causing Celtic some concerns.
The news that Rogic could be out for the next six weeks or so will come as a blow to Celtic and Rodgers.
The Australian midfielder is a vital member of The Bhoys’ squad and has been extremely important to helping the club dominate the Scottish Premiership over the years.
He will likely miss the Europa League games with Valencia as well as a number of important league games and Rodgers will be hoping some of his players will be able to step up in the 26-year-old’s absence.
