Biography

Club: Celtic

Previous clubs: ANU FC, Belconnen United, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Victory (loan)

Caltex Socceroos cap number: 548

Debut: 14/11/2012 v South Korea

One of the most creative and technical players Australia has produced, Rogic is now consistently delivering on the ability that has been evident from his attention-grabbing first season with Central Coast Mariners.

It wasn't long before Celtic swooped in and took him to Glasgow, although his development was stunted by injuries that impacted on a loan to Melbourne Victory and cost him a spot at Brazil 2014.

However, the languid left-footer has bounced back brilliantly in the Scottish Premiership, proving instrumental in back-to-back trebles.

Earlier this month he signed a five-year contract extension with Brendan Rodgers' team to end all speculation ahead of the trip to Russia.

Best Caltex Socceroos moment:

Rogic scored a vital winner in a 3-2 victory over Saudi Arabia in June 2017. He was also on target against Germany at the FIFA Confederations Cup merely 11 days later.

Hyundai A-League connection:

The Canberra local scored five goals in 23 matches to kick-off his professional career, while an eight-game loan spell with Melbourne Victory was affected by fitness issues.

Rogic represented Australia at the 2010 AFC Futsal Championship, finishing as the team's top scorer with six goals.
