Rogic has yet to appear for the club so far this season, even failing to make the bench in one match.

He's found first-team opportunities harder to come by over the previous two seasons having once been an integral part of the starting XI under former managers Ronny Deila and Brendan Rodgers.

Rogic has been at Celtic since moving from Central Coast Mariners in 2012. He's made 187 appearances and been capped 47 times for his country during that time.

His most notable moment in a hooped shirt came at the conclusion of the 2016/17 campaign, when his winning goal in the dying seconds of the Scottish Cup final victory over Aberdeen sealed a domestic treble and undefeated season for Brendan Rodgers' side.

His contract still has another three years to run at Celtic after signing an extension in 2018.
