UNLUCKY TOM ROGIC has suffered another injury to his ankle that will keep him out of the free flowing Celtic side for at least two more months.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the news that the Aussie playmaker injured himself in training just as he was ready to return to the first team after recovering from the ankle knock incurred in the match against Dundee at Celtic Park at the end of last year.
“Tom Rogic will be out probably for the next few months,” Rodgers revealed today ahead of the Scottish Cup tie with Inverness Caley Thistle on Saturday lunchtime.
“He had to have an operation. It was unfortunate, it was right at the end of training, the same spot where he had it before.
“His foot stuck in the ground and he did a full twist on it.
“It was either going through the same procedure as before or have an operation so he went to London for an operation and it is all done and he is on the way to recovery now.
“It is a big disappointment because he is a player I was looking forward to seeing back.
“He will be back for the end of the season, it is a disappointment that he will miss up to eight weeks.”
Rogic had been enjoying his best ever season at Celtic and was rewarded by receiving a bumper new contract from Rodgers who seems him as a crucial part of the team he is building.
