Tom Rogic is growing “frustrated” with his injury problems at Celtic suggests former Hoops defender Jackie McNamara, and the midfielder will be hoping he is up to speed following the international break.

Speaking to Football Insider, McNamara believes Rogic’s recent issues with injury will be a source of frustration for the Australia international.

I think for him he’ll be pretty frustrated. You find that after someone’s been out for quite a while, they end up picking silly niggly ones. It might just be something small but for his side he will be hoping he’s not out for long.

Rogic has certainly struggled for fitness this season, having featured just three times after recovering from an injury sustained in pre-season.

After playing the full 90 minutes against Partick Thistle in the Scottish League Cup, and scoring, many had expected the midfielder to play a part in the Hoops’ next run of games.

However after being an unused substitute against CFR Cluj and Hibernian respectively, the midfielder missed the defeat to Livingston all together.

But after Ryan Christie’s red card in the loss last weekend, Rogic could be set for an important role following the international break in Christie’s absence, is he is match fit.
