Caltex Socceroo into Scottish League Cup final

Caltex Socceroo playmaker Tom Rogic is into the Scottish League Cup final after Celtic defeated archrivals Rangers.

Celtic triumphed 1-0 at Hampden Park thanks to Moussa Dembele's late strike, with Rogic coming off in the 70th minute after a lively performance for the Hoops.

The Socceroos midfielder set up numerous chances during his time on the pitch, although he would have been disappointed not to have opened the scoring in the 20th minute when Rangers goalkeeper Matthew Gilks mistakenly passed the ball to him inside the penalty area.

Rogic's first touch let him down, however, and Gilks gratefully pounced on the ball.

Celtic still advanced though, with Dembele finishing off Leigh Griffiths' pass in the 87th minute to secure victory, and Rogic and Co. will take on Aberdeen in the final on November 27.

In Netherlands, Brad Jones was unable to continue Feyenoord's perfect start to the season but he did play 90 minutes as the leaders drew 1-1 with Ajax in a top-of-the-table clash to maintain the Rotterdam-based club's five-point advantage.

Elsewhere, Jason Davidson played 70 minutes in Groningen's 2-0 win over AZ.

Tomi Juric scored the opening goal as FC Luzern defeated St Gallen 3-0 in the Swiss Super League.

Juric opened the scoring in the ninth minute, turning sharply in the box to finish from Markus Neumayr's pass, with the Socceroos striker scoring his third league goal of the campaign.
