He was hoping to come on at some point during the FA Cup final against Aberdeen, but he didn’t expect to be called halfway through the first half, when teammate Kieran Tierney got injured and had to leave the pitch.
He ended up being Celtic’s golden scorer in the last minute of the match, a feeling impossible to describe, as he said after the final whistle.
It’s hard to describe what it feels like to score a goal like that and then go and jump into the crowd. It’s impossible to put it into words, but it’s probably the best feeling you can have on the football pitch to score the winner in the last minute
Tom Rogic told reporters. It was his goal that made it 2-1 for Celtic, completing a memorable treble for them.
Everyone has to be ready. The manager is calm in the decisions he makes. I didn’t expect to come on so quickly and it wasn’t good to see KT [Kieran Tierney] go off
the Australia international also said, referring to his unlucky teammate’s injury. Rogic finished the season with 12 goals in 37 appearances. One of those 12 goals was again versus Aberdeen in another final, the one of the Scottish League Cup, back in November.
