Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has told The Telegraph that he has spoken to Celtic’s and Australian international Tom Rogic about his future at the club.
The Norther Irishman has stated that he wants Rogic to remain at the club amidst recent speculations linking him with an exit.
Rodgers, though, has admitted that the Aussie’s decision on his future may depends on factors other than football.
The former Liverpool and Swansea manager told said to The Telegraph:
“I’ve spoken to Tom a number of times and I am quite relaxed on it really. Of course, he knows I’d love him to be here but, rightly so, he has to think of everything.
“here but his next contract is a big decision for him and his wife.
“They are both Australian, so they need to have a think about where they want to be. I know they love being here. He knows how much I rate him as a player and he has a World Cup to concentrate on, so we’ll see what happens after that.”
According to Transfermkt.com, Rogic has been with the Scotland champions since January 2013 when he joined the club from Central Coast Mariners and has a contract with the Hoops until the summer of 2019.
A report from Australian website The World Game SBS in February 2018 claimed that the prolific attacking midfielder had turned down a new contract offer the Celtic, with the club reportedly valuing him at $6 million (£3.3m).
The 25-year-old has scored four goals and provided four assists in 17 Scottish Premiership appearances for Celtic so far this season, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
Celtic will win the Scottish Premiership title today if they defeat Old Firm rivals Rangers at Celtic Park this afternoon.
