Big Tam has signed on the line for 5 more years meaning that two things have happened tonight, first we have the key to unlock the Newco whenever we play them, second if any club wants to sign Rogic it will be for 8 figures.
This contract is a massive boost for Celtic, everyone loves Rogic, the players, the Captain, the gaffer and the fans, it is good to see the board have rewarded him.
I have written that no matter what we would have received from a prospective transfer we wouldn’t have found a comparable player at the same price, now instead of signing a replacement, we have the player we want.
I find it a little quaint that Rogic became recalcitrant on a new contract after Musonda arrived and the day he leaves he signs a 5-year deal.
People were perplexed with Charly’s lack of game time, maybe Celtic knew who to prefer in the run in and beyond.
Whatever the case, today we have unloaded and expensive flop and put the money towards a proven talent.
Again, this is a magnificent result for Celtic, Tom Rogic and our supporters.
Big Tam’s here for 10 in a row.
