HARD to please Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers believes Tom Rogic still has much more to offer the champions.
The Aussie midfielder is on international duty against Saudia Arabia and Japan over the next few days and has admitted his delight at extending his Parkhead deal by a further three years.unspecified-25
The 23-year-old playmaker has made an impressive start to the campaign, but Rodgers reckons Rogic can still go up a gear.

He said: “I think he can be better. He is a boy who has got big potential. He knows the areas of the game that I think he can be better in. I talk a lot to him and we work a lot on the training ground in terms of his game.”

Rogic started last week’s thrilling 3-3 Champions League draw against Manchester City, but was substituted before the hour mark by Stuart Armstrong. With a question mark over his long-term fitness because of the length of time he was sidelined with injuries, Rodgers is wary of over-using the player.

He said: “That experience will really have helped him in his thinking. He is a very talented player, Tom, and I also have to bear in my mind that he spent a few years out of the game.

“I have to manage that because he is not going to play every single minute of every single game because he has had issues that have kept him out for big stages.

“But there can be little doubt he is a big talent.”
