Rogic calls on Celtic to build momentum


Celtic Football Club midfielder Tom Rogic has called upon the team to start building some momentum in the following their 4-2 victory over Hibernian on Saturday.

The Australia international scored the opening goal of the game and revealed in the aftermath of the encounter that the Scottish champions felt as though they had a point to prove.

Brendan Rodgers’ side face RB Leipzig in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday before taking on Premiership table toppers Hearts in the Scottish League Cup and then in a top-of-the-table league clash, Rogic is looking for Celtic to maintain the standard they have set in recent games.

“It was good to score but the most important thing was that we got the win,” the midfielder told Celtic TV.

“We could have been a bit more clinical and distanced ourselves further in the match. We let them back into the match but we got there and probably could have scored a few more.”

“Hibs are a strong team, they have been in good form so we wanted to prove a point at home in front of a full crowd and I think we did that. It was a strong performance and we need to build a bit of momentum now because there are a lot of games coming up.”

Meanwhile, Celtic winger James Forrest also echoed the sentiment of Rogic, the Scotland international believes that Celtic are starting to hit their best form after a slow start to the season.

“I think in the last few games we have seen that we are getting back to our best and creating more chances,” said the winger. “We scored four but could have scored more.”
