ANOTHER week and another Celtic player is wanted by a foreign club with access to an overflowing bank account.

It was the story of last summer and this one. And almost certainly the next one as well.

This time it’s Tom Rogic, another example of Celtic’s successful policy of signing talent on the cheap only for them to be worth ten times more within a few years.

The would-be buyer, Zenit St Petersburg, are reportedly looking at the Australian with a bid for £9m quoted, although whether an actual offer has been put in is up for debate.

That’s far too low. If the Russians do pick up the phone, it’s going to be a short discussion. I read Celtic want £19m and that’s getting closer to reality if any of this happened.

Every player has a price. Rogic is injury prone. As an Australian international he does a lot of travelling. Last season, aside from a handful of highlights, was a bit of a non-event for one of Celtic’s better players.

And in this day and age, if Zenit or some other club come in with a ‘silly bid’ then it would be difficult for the Celtic board to pocket the money. It would be an understandable if not popular move.

However, I’ve a feeling that Rogic isn’t going anywhere.

Celtic don’t need the money. If (when) Kieran Tierney goes, and Olivier Ntcham could be sold as well, that’s the best part of £30m coming into the club. Nobody else needs to be sold who the manager wants to keep.

There is nobody else at Celtic like Rogic. Sure, there are a number who can play in his position, Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor spring to mind, but the big Aussie is a real one-off.

He doesn’t do much running. There can’t be a player in Celtic history who has been substituted more often. Fitness has been a problem for him even in the good seasons. He can struggle in Europe.

However, when Rogic gets his back to goal, turns a perplexed so-called marker and then go on the attack with speed and determination, it’s one of the best sights in Scottish football.

For a man who doesn’t look like a footballer, Tom Rogic has given Celtic supporters more than his fair share of iconic moments over recent years.

His winning goal against Aberdeen to secure the first of the three trebles and ensure we finished the season unbeaten is a moment even this ridiculously talented player will do well to top.

I love watching the Aussie when the ball gets fired into him, he spins his away from his man and from nothing Celtic have a goal.

He’s the man for the biggest occasion. Is that worth £10m or so? Hmm, I'm not sure. If Rogic wants to leave, and I’ve a feeling he’s found his perfect home with Celtic, then this changes things.

The player has all the power these days unlike when I was at the club - and that goes for when I was manager. There isn’t a lot even a lot a manager can do when they have a player in their squad who fancies going, and a bid has come in for him, but for the time being he’s stuck.

Russian clubs have money and I’m sure the means to offer most if not all players at Celtic a significant wage rise. I get that, I understand why young Kieran may leave, but Rogic is a different case. Celtic don’t need to sell. The players doesn’t need to go. I see this one going the way of the club. Although I bet Lennon can’t wait for this pesky transfer window to shut.
