Socceroos star Tom Rogic has signed a new three-year contract with Scottish champions Celtic.

The former Central Coast Mariners playmaker had entered the final season of his previous deal but has now committed himself to Glasgow club until 2019.

The 23-year-old impressed last season after recovering from an injury-interrupted start to his Parkhead career following his move from the A-League in 2013.

And the creative midfielder has been further reinvigorated by the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as manager.

Rogic, who has scored 10 goals in 57 Celtic appearances, told the club's website: "It's a great show of faith by the club in me.

"I'm happy here and happy to commit my future to the club that I'm proud of, and I'm just really excited for the future.

"The manager's had a very positive impact on the club so far and I'm sure we will continue to build on that.

"It's a great time to be at the club, and for me to have my future sorted and know that I'm going to be working with the manager for the coming seasons is great.

"The manager's had a say in me re-signing here, and he has played a big role in me deciding to stay here, and you can tell he's a top-class manager.

"I still feel that I have a lot to give and I know that, under him, I can develop and progress and contribute to the team's success."
