Celtic hero Scott Brown has paid tribute to Tom Rogic after the Australian announced his retirement from football.

The 30-year-old confirmed he was hanging up his boots as he opened up on personal issues.

Rogic revealed that he and his wife have endured a challenging journey with fertility issues in recent years and he now feels the time is right to concentrate on his family with a two-year-old already in his arms and twins on the way

The former Australian international enjoyed a hugely successful period in Glasgow that saw him win six league titles, five Scottish Cups and five League Cups.

He subsequently left the club in the summer of 2022 after Ange Postecoglou had taken over as manager. He would go on to sign for West Brom, but things just never worked out as well as his time at Parkhead.

And ex-team-mate Brown is one of several players to pay tribute to the playmaker. He wrote on Rogic's retirement post on Instagram: "What a baller. Wish you all the best in the future."

Ryan Christie, Liel Abada, Josip Juranovic, Aaron Mooy, Stuart Armstrong and Joe Hart were among the others to also wish the Aussie well.
