Caltex Socceroo playmaker Tom Rogic has shown he can match it with English Premier League opposition after Celtic's draw with Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League overnight.
Celtic secured a well-deserved 1-1 draw with the EPL powerhouse in an end-to-end clash at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Celtic took the lead inside four minutes through Patrick Roberts, only for the hosts to equalise soon after via Kelechi Iheanacho.
With Rogic pulling the strings in the middle of the park, the Hoops had the best chances to win the match through the 90 minutes, having more shots at goal than City.
Rogic, who has scored 10 times already this season for Celtic, went close to opening the scoring after just three minutes when his shot stung the palms of keeper Willy Caballero.
The visitors went in front a minute later with a great solo effort by Roberts.
But their lead lasted just four minutes as Iheanacho smashed an effort into the roof of the net after superb lead-up play by Nolito.
The second half continued to produce chances for Celtic, with Rogic at the heart of most of them as the City defence struggled to deal with him.
Rogic also had a chance to give Celtic the lead midway through the second half but his volley went wide.
The result means Brendan Rodgers’ side ends the group stage with three draws and three defeats from their six matches.
But Rogic’s classy 90 minutes against the EPL giants again caught the eye, especially among the fans.
