While the Socceroo still strikes fear into the hearts of Rangers fans, the commentary from the Scottish media surrounding Rogic's impending Celtic departure is beginning to lose that appropriate tinge of regret.

The former SPL star, now pundit, has reinforced growing calls within the Scottish media that despite the Socceroos' star's long service to Celtic, the Scottish powerhouses need new options.

While the pundits recognise Rogic's superb technical skills - the 27-year-old is still seen as one of the finest technical exponents in the league - his long-term injury concerns are now enhanced by a different strategy under Hoops boss Neil Lennon.

Hutton on Rogic: 'I’m glad to see the back of him'

Rogic "has had his time now" according to former Premier League and Scottish star Alan Hutton, who believes Celtic will be better off with a replacement.

Lennon has been changing Celtic's style over the past season to favour a more direct, less languid style of play that completely opposes Rogic's (now potentially slightly narrower) skill-set.

“On his day I think he can be special. He’s always played well against Rangers so obviously I’m glad to see the back of him for that," Hutton said after Celtic's Champions League exit.

With Lennon vocally slamming his wantaway players following Celtic's embarrassing Champions League qualifier loss to Hungarian club Ferencváros, former players such as Hutton now see Rogic's potential future as non-existent.

Celtic are attempting to crack Europe's elite and with talk that Celtic have signed $40 million attacking midfielder David Turnbull alongside other high-profile players from the likes of Atletico Madrid, the club's loyalty to one of their great modern midfielders has become tested.

Not that even they see Qatar as the right level.

“It’s definitely a step down, the club’s that are being talked about. Then again, is he getting a big wage packet? We don’t know. Could that be what’s tempting him over there? Probably.

“I think he’s a very good player and all the Celtic fans will as well but he’s maybe had his time now, time to move on and maybe bring in some fresh faces.”
