“Looking back on it now, it seems a long time ago and things can change so quickly.
“But at that point, did I think I’d be coming back here now and be playing in the Celtic team? Maybe not, but it’s amazing how things work out.
“I was never really trying to prove anyone wrong when I went back. Maybe, if anything, I was trying to prove to myself that I could still do it, but that wasn’t my main motivation.
“Being injured and missing a year was hard, but as a player you accept these things happen.
“To come through that difficult period definitely makes you mentally stronger. I don’t think people realise what you go through. It’s made me a better player.”
Rogic added: “When I first came over here it was a big move and change for me.
“It helped to know that other Aussies such as Mark Viduka and Scott McDonald had come over here and been successful at this club.”
