Celtic star reveals Rogic's 'physio tape' twist on viral challenge


Tom Rogic's technical skills off the pitch were evident long before the rise of the toilet paper challenge, according to Celtic teammate Callum McGregor.

With most of world football suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, footballers near and far have taken part in several social media challenges to pass the time - the latest of which, with toilet paper.

But with Rogic back in Australia awaiting clarity on his club future, midfield mainstay McGregor had high praise for the Socceroo's skills upon reflection.

"When the days are so long you’ll do anything to hold off the boredom a wee bit", McGregor told Celtic's official website.

"I actually think Tom Rogic would be good at it because he does that with physio tape a lot.

"He’ll be in the treatment room doing keepy-ups with it and then he’ll flick it into the bin."

Rogic had caught the ire of Celtic supporters this season following sequential injuries but appeared to find both form and fitness before the pandemic postponed the Scottish Premiership.

Fellow Australian Daniel Arzani has also returned to Australia since the suspension, with his Hoops future equally in question.
