Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton

I read someone commenting that Rogic hasn't seen his newborn baby, so I'm assuming it is for personal reasons. I'm gutted he is away as I hoped to get another couple of seasons out of him to get O'Riley fully up to speed (he has made a brilliant start but is still very young).

Thanks to both and good luck to them.
I am really happy that O'Reilly is at Celtic but I don't think he is at Rogic's level just yet. I will miss both Rogic and Bitton.

Do we know if it's their choice to leave or did we just not offer them a contract extension?
It’s been reported as both are leaving by mutual consent, so their contracts aren’t up, so they have asked to leave, it that’s the case what’s puzzling me is, both signed in for us in 2013 and will be due a money spinning testimonial next year, is there something going on behind the scenes we’re not been told aboot? 🤷‍♂️

There was times when bitton was spoke about as Brown's understudy or replacement...unfortunately injuries got in the way. And he was unlucky enough to be a CM...which has been a position where we have had some fantastic players over the years....if you weren't 100% then it was very hard to get into the team when you were out of it. He has filled in and played in any position he was needed and he's did well, apart from the odd brain fart red card here and there. He wasn't born a Celtic fan but he certainly will be now until the day he dies. The club is in his blood and he will be welcomed back with open arms when ever he wants to pay a visit.

Tom fucking Rogic. On his day, has been one of the best players to grace paradise. (I'm only in my 30s mind, I know all you oldies have seen better). The way he glides past players at ease...wow. And the goals he could score!!! A true hun skelper. The scum will sleep a little easier next season knowing they won't be facing him.
The Sheephaven Bay pub...Camden. a small group of Celtic fans sitting watching the seconds tick away. Extra time looming. The fear that an invincible treble could be vanishing....then up steps tom....Baring down on goal. A wee touch to the right.....and with a crash of thunder....BANG....ball hits the back of the net and before I know it I'm on a fucking table!!! Place is bouncing!!! Barmaid is screaming to get "off the fucking table"......FUCK OFF!!! We've just made history....Big tams just made history ya maddy!!!! Great memories!!

Bitton knows he won't play as much and Tom probably wants to move closer to home. He had his heart set on leaving not that long ago but chose to stay. Maybe he made that decision with his family that he would give us one more season....and what a season.

I am glad that The Wizard of Oz didn't go to Qatar when that was in the pipeline because we got his best season this year and it's a pity that Ange wasn't managing Nir four or five years ago because then Nir would have been played in his best position and not stuck into central defence all the time.

Particularly agreed on Rogic as we literally were moving out of Qatar at that time and would’ve been genuinely pissed at not being able to watch the wizard 😂
