Central Coast Mariners star Tom Rogic will join Celtic for a week-long training stint as part of their mid-season training camp in Spain. The Scottish giants invited the 20 year-old Socceroo to take part in their training camp as they prepare for the second half of their season, including their UEFA Champions League knock-out match against Juventus.
Rogic is in the last six-months of his contract with the Mariners but has not yet received an official offer from Celtic. Mariners director of football, Lawrie McKinna said the trial is a great opportunity for Rogic to further his development while suspended from A-league games. "This is a great opportunity for Tomas to train with Celtic's first team squad. Celtic are in their mid-season break and are busy preparing for their Champions League matches against Juventus starting in February, so Tom will undoubtedly learn a lot from the experience.” McKinna said.
Rogic will return to the Mariners in time for the F3 derby against Newcastle Jets on January 19.
