Former Leeds and Newcastle forward Michael Bridges has had his say on where Celtic ace Tom Rogic should go on play his football.

The Lowdown: All but gone

A number of Premier League clubs were implored to go for the Australia international, who has all but played his final game at Parkhead.

Celtic offered their thanks to both Rogic and Bitton in a post that congratulated their achievements during their near-ten year stay with the Hoops.

Postecoglou gushed over the pair, with full understanding of their decision to leave: “They have certainly made such a tremendous contribution to Celtic over such a long and successful period for the club and I understand that in their minds the time is right to move on.”

The Latest: Could improve a few teams

Bridges believes Rogic could improve a number of Premier League teams, claiming he “could see him fitting into a Leeds United team”.

He also cites Brighton and Newcastle as potential destinations, although expects the Tyneside outfit with their newfound wealth to aim much higher.

The pundit also thinks the Celtic manager will be “gutted” to be losing the former A-League star, which would explain the 30-second embrace with Ange, and could further outline Rogic’s ability to play at a high level.

“I could see him fitting into a Brighton team and I could also see him fitting into a Leeds United team, I think that would be the kind of thing you’re looking at,” he added.

The Verdict: Worth a punt

At the age of 29, and with just a year left on his contract, this attacking midfielder, dubbed “very talented” by his manager, could prove a bargain option for Leeds United who have lacked goals and creativity this season.

Rogic, who boasts 16 goal contributions this season from midfield, would certainly improve a Leeds United who have only mustered 40 goals this season, despite shipping 78. His contributions would put him second in the Leeds team, only behind Raphinha who is reportedly ready to leave Elland Road this summer.

Leeds could do worse than the £1.35m-rated maestro, who could prove a shrewd signing to impress in whatever league they end up in next season.
