Tom Rogic has starred for Celtic in the Scottish Premier League overnight with the Caltex Socceroos playmaker setting up both goals in the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock.
ROGIC AT THE DOUBLE
The Aussie was on fire at Rugby Park in a match that Celtic dominated but relied on Rogic’s class to open up the stubborn home side.
Rogic’s first moment of magic came just before halftime when he beat two men on a powerful run into the box before sliding the ball into the path of James Forrest for a simple finish.
But his involvement in the second goal was even better.
Two minutes from the end Rogic again did most of the work himself, picking up the ball just inside Killie’s half before producing an incisive 30-metre run past a couple of defenders.
He slipped a pin-point pass into the path of Callum McGregor to score to seal another win for the defending champions.
Rogic and Celtic have another big week with the second leg of their UEFA Champions League qualifier against Astana on Thursday (AEST) in Kazakhstan.
The Hoops take a 5-0 lead into the second leg.
Brendan Rodgers’ side then play St Johnstone in the SPL next weekend before Rogic will link up with the Caltex Socceroos for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Japan and Thailand.
