Aussie international Rogic signs new Celtic contract

Glasgow, Scotland: Australian international midfielder Tom Rogic boosted Scottish champions Celtic ahead of Saturday's Cup final with Motherwell by signing a new five year contract. 

The decision by the 25-year-old -- who will be pivotal if Celtic are to emulate last year's treble in Saturday's climax to the season -- will disappoint English Premier League side Southampton who were interested in luring him away.

"I feel great to have signed a new contract," Rogic told the club website. "I'm very proud and honoured to be able to commit my future to the club. I enjoy playing regular football here. I'm working under a top class manager and to play my club football here is something that's very special to me so I couldn't be happier to have signed a new contract."

Rogic signed for Celtic in Jaunary 2013 but has become instrumental to Celtic's success on the pitch since the 2015/16 campaign. 

His most notable moment both personally and for the club came with his match-winning goal against Aberdeen in the dying seconds of last season's Cup final that sealed the treble and rounded off a season where they were unbeaten domestically. 

"When you win a single trophy it's something very special so to have won as many as I have here is another reason why I love it here and why I feel very privileged to represent the club," said Rogic.

"The Scottish Cup final goal last season was a pretty special moment that I think will be hard to top.

"I've played in a lot of big games here at this club and to have contributed a small part to that makes me very proud.

"I'll keep working as hard as I can to hopefully create more in the future."
