INJURY-JINXED Tom Rogic could make a shock comeback in Celtic’s crucial title run-in.
The Australian midfielder hasn’t made a single first team appearance this season because of his persistent groin problem.
However, he was praised by coach Stevie Frail after playing for an hour the Development Squad’s 3-2 victory over Kilmarnock on Monday.
Rogic, who also played for 60 minutes last week against Hamilton, scored the young Hoops’ second goal with an effort from 20 yards.
The 22-year-old is continuing to build up his match sharpness after a long period on the sidelines.

A delighted Frail told Celtic TV: “His road back to recovery has been a long, lonely road. He’s enjoying playing for the team as he has hasn’t played for so long.

“Tom’s a great addition to the side. The players see how he uses his strength and body.

“Tom’s maybe not the quickest player over the ground, but upstairs he knows how to see the game, he reads it very well and he can pass the ball.

“I’m really pleased he got a goal as well. He got another 60 minutes in his comeback and he will need a few more games and then, hopefully, he can feature in the first team before the end of the season.”
Meanwhile big mouthed  Jose Mourinho has dismissed Ronny Deila’s feat of guiding Celtic towards the League title in his first season.

The Chelsea boss doesn’t believe it is such an achievement for the Hoops to rule in the Scottish top-flight.
He said: “At this moment, it’s very difficult in the Premier League for a team to be dominant.
“This is not Germany with Bayern Munich. This is not Switzerland with Basle. This is not Scotland with Celtic.”
The controversial Portuguese gaffer, who first crossed swords with Celtic as Porto coach in the 2003 UEFA Cup Final in Seville, didn’t mention that his Stamford Bridge team have been favourites to take the crown across the border for months or that Aberdeen’s challenge has been more worthy that the ones from mega-rich clubs from Manchester. How many points clear are Chelsea?
