He wasn’t on the scoresheet but Tom Rogic turned in a match-winning performance as Celtic won 2-0 away against Motherwell.

At Aberdeen a fortnight ago the midfielder came off the bench to play a key role in Jota’s late winner that provided Celtic with their first SPFL win on the road since February.

After two appearances for Australia it must have been tempting to leave Rogic on the bench at Motherwell for the more defensive option of Nir Bitton in the middle of the park but Ange Postecoglou’s attacking instinct was rewarded in full.

While others scrapped and battled for possession Rogic was a cut above, floating around with purpose and intent best demonstrated by his pass for Jota’s opener.

Showing vision that few others possess his diagonal pass was perfectly weighted with the on loan Portuguese winger taking the ball in his stride then burying his shot past Liam Kelly.

David Turnbull scored with a spectacular second half goal proving that he can play in tandem with Rogic as options open up for Celtic after an indifferent start to a season of transition.
