‘Take It And Run’ ‘Would Be Gutted If He Goes’ Fans Debate Reports That Club Are Plotting £9m Swoop For Celtic Playmaker

Zenit St Petersburg will make a £9m bid for Celtic attacking midfielder Tom Rogic, according to reports in the Scottish media.

The Russian club have been tracking the Australian international for a while, and have targeted the 26-year-old as their new number 10.

Some fans on Twitter would take the money considering Rogic’s poor injury record:

While other supporters don’t think Celtic should be selling one of their best players:

It appears the Hoops would reject the bid from Zenit if an opening offer is made. The Scottish champions don’t want to sell a player who signed a new five-year contract last year.

However, it seems even Rogic has his price with Celtic said to be ready to consider a proposal if a bid in the region of £15m was made.

The Australian played just 21 times in the league last season, scoring three goals and providing six assists. He is currently recovering from an ankle injury that will see him miss the first leg of the Champions League qualifier against FK Sarajevo next week.
