Tom Rogic shook off the ankle injury which kept him out of Socceroos duty with a goal as Celtic won the Old Firm 2-1 over Rangers to take a strangehold in the Scottish Premiership title race.
Rangers had taken an early lead but Rogic levelled after only seven minutes for the Hoops with a cool finish from a rebound.
The Australian had initially had his right-foot shot blocked, before Gers keeper Allan McGregor saved Reo Hatate’s effort into Rogic’s path and he made no mistake.
Rogic had a chance to put Celtic ahead shortly after but was blocked by the desperate Rangers defence.
Cameron Carter-Vickers hit the winner in the 42nd minute with Rogic impressing, earning an 8/10 rating from the Daily Record who wrote: “Aussie was declared fit after an ankle issue and was superb for his hour.
“Paid boss back with a calm equaliser and caused problems finding pockets of space. Missed a second chance and third blocked. Excellent.”
