BRENDAN RODGERS believes the “exceptional” Tom Rogic can score over 15 goals for Celtic this season.

The Hoops boss is convinced his classy 24-year-old midfielder is poised for another productive season with the treble-winners.

Rogic claimed 11 strikes last term despite missing four months with an ankle injury.

He has picked up where he left off and has already scored twice against Linfield, home and away, in the Champions League for the Parkhead men.

Celtic’s last-gasp Scottish Cup winner was involved with his Aussie team-mates on the international front throughout the summer and has hit the ground running at club level.

Rodgers said: “He is an exceptional player and the beauty with Tom is that he has come back fit.

“He is one of the players right up to speed fitness-wise as he been training and playing games for virtually all of his off-season.

“Tom has returned and you see the level of his game. He’s a fantastic talent and if he can stay fit this year, he can go on and get 15-plus goals.”
