Aussies Abroad: Rogic stars for Celtic while Taggart scores again

Tom Rogic made another stride toward full fitness by starring in Celtic's 4-0 win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership overnight. 

The Australian playmaker completed back to back 90 minute performances as the champions ran riot at Pittodrie with an emphatic first-half blitz.

Rogic was heavily involved for Neil Lennon's side, slicing the hosts defence open with a gorgeous slide-rule pass in the lead up to James Forrest's third, and picking up an assist for Mohamed Elyounoussi's fourth.

Earlier, Odsonne Edouard scored his 11th goal of the season to open the floodgates, before young Dutchman Jeremie Frimpong netted his first goal of his professional career.

“It’s up there with the best 45 minutes I’ve seen from the players," said Celtic boss Neil Lennon after the game. 

"They were relentless and the quality of their play was fantastic. I’m grateful for the win because it’s a big ask to come here after Thursday and perform like they did.”

The 4-0 demolition ends a fantastic week for the Bhoys, who beat Lazio 2-1 in the UEFA Europa League on Friday and are now above Rangers at the Scottish Premiership summit.

Adam Taggart scored his 19th goal of the season as Suwon Bluewings drew 1-1 with Incheon in the K-League playoffs. 

Taggart broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute for Suwon, who were pegged back by Myung Joon-jae's strike in the second minute of stoppage time.

Over in the Eredivisie, Ajdin Hrustic was involved in Groningen's 1-1 draw with rivals Heerenveen.

The Derby of the North finished level after Groningen's Charlison Benschop's 73rd minute penalty cancelled out an earlier spot kick by Hicham Faik.

Meanwhile, Apostolos Giannou played his part in a crazy, eight-goal thriller in the Cypriot First Division. 

Giannou played 90 minutes as AEK Larnaca drew 4-4 with Paralimni in a result that leaves the Australian's side third on the table. 

In the Championship, Bailey Wright was an unused substitute in Bristol City's 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic. 

An 86th minute equaliser from Wright's Portuguese teammate Pedro Pereira moves The Robins into the top six.
