Celtic great Tom Rogic said his final farewell to Hoops fans on the pitch when he made his last appearance for the Bhoys against Motherwell at the weekend.
Now he has given the final interview of his Hoops career before he takes on a new challenge to Celtic TV, which has been uploaded to the Celtic YouTube channel.
YouTube: Final Interview with Tom Rogic
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the interview is that he felt that he had to leave the Hoops on a high after the disappointments of last season, and he has certainly done that, by helping Ange Postecoglou’s side win the Premiership and Premier Sports Cup double.
“I did feel it was important for me to go out on a high and leave as a champion after all the success here. It’s another great season to have here. It’s been a special ride and I’ve been fortunate to experience so many great memories at Celtic Park and with the travelling fans” he said.
READ CELTIC VERDICT:
Tom Rogic is a modern day Celtic legend, and it is great for the club that he didn’t contemplate leaving until he got the Bhoys back to the top of the Scottish game where Celtic belong.
As he says, he has experienced many great memories in his nine years in Glasgow, but he has also provided many great memories, none better than the last-minute winner in the 2017 Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen.
It will be difficult for Celtic to replace Rogic, as he has that extra bit of magic that separates him from most other players in Scotland. It is a pity that he will not pit his wits against the best teams in Europe in the Champions League next season, as he is more than capable of making an impact in that competition.
It will be interesting to see where Rogic goes next, it has not yet been announced who his new club will be. He is still more than good enough to play at a high level, which is why it is a shame that his time at Celtic has come to an end, even though it was very successful.
Rogic will be remembered for years to come for the many wonderful goals he scored for the Hoops, and it is good news that he got the chance to say goodbye in style by helping the Bhoys to another league title.
