Caltex Socceroos star Tom Rogic is celebrating title success in Scotland after helping Celtic wrap up the Scottish Premiership with a nail-biting win overnight.
Rogic played 82 minutes as the Hoops held on for a 3-2 win over Aberdeen to secure a fifth straight league title.
Only needing a draw to clinch the championship, Celtic raced to a 3-0 lead early in the second half thanks to a Patrick Roberts brace and another to Mikael Lustig.
But Aberdeen set up a nervy finish by pulling two goals back with still 25 minutes to play through Niall McGing and Andrew Considine.
It was to no avail as Celtic held on for the win to kick off title the championship party for Rogic.
There was also reason to celebrate for fellow Aussie Shane Cansdell-Sheriff as his Burton Albion side secured promotion to the English Championship.
