CRAIG Moore believes Tom Rogic could still move on to a top club in England or Europe - despite committing his long-term future to Celtic to 2023.

Former Rangers captain Moore helped Rogic when the playmaker was starting out on his career in his role as an elite player mentor with the Australian Football Federation.

The Socceroos great was always convinced the No.10, who took over two years to establish himself in the first team at Parkhead, would come good in Glasgow.

He has been delighted to see his compatriot become a key man for the Scottish champions both domestically and in Europe during the last three seasons.

Rogic, who turned 26 last month, was tipped to depart last season after turning down an initial contract offer from Celtic and was linked with moves to both Arsenal and Southampton.

However, the player, who is currently away with his country at the Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates, agreed a lucrative new five year deal in May.

Moore, who also played for Crystal Palace and Newcastle United in England as well as Borussia Moenchengladbach in Germany, feels he could still try his luck abroad in seasons to come.

“A lot of people didn’t believe Tom could come to Scotland and do well for Celtic,” he said. “I was always convinced he would.

“I knew what was there and what he had to offer. He is very good in his area. He is good at creating opportunities, he is good at scoring goals, he is good at assisting.

“I am really happy for Tommy. He has done really well. He has been a great player for us, for the national team as well. But these are things that I kind of thought would happen. I wasn’t really surprised.”

Moore added: “I think he made the right decision last year. Moving on probably wasn’t right at the time. Tommy has signed for another five years and will continue to play well.

“From Celtic’s point of view, they they have protected their asset until 2023. He may well go in that period of time. But they will get money for him if he does. There may come a time where he does move on.”
