Tom Rogic has stood up for Celtic Captain Scott Brown after his halftime spat with Sevco manager Pedro Caixinha.
Speaking in the Scotsman Big Tam said:
“That’s up to him,” said Rogic when asked about Caixinha’s face-off with Brown. “You certainly wouldn’t see our manager getting involved in anything like that. I think that maybe says a little bit about their [Rangers’] situation and where they are.
“I don’t know what the Rangers manager saw. That’s not really my place to comment. But Scott’s a good leader. I don’t think [he crosses the line sometimes]. “He is massive for us. You have your captain leading by example in almost all of our matches. He seems to win every 50-50 he goes into.
“He puts himself about for tackles and when the ball comes to him, he is calm and composed. He gets us set up on the right foot. He’s been at this club for years now. He is a leader who leads by example.
“He has been an exceptional player for a number of years now. He will be one that, when he stops playing, people will look back and see him as a real legend of the club.
“We are fortunate to have a captain like him to play under. It makes our job easier.
“He’s been at the club since day one for me. He’s one of the few who are still here since I joined. He doesn’t always have to say something to you, he just leads by example. It rubs off on his team-mates.”
Speaking about the Newco’s attempts to bridge the gulf Rogic said.
“I don’t know how Rangers compare to last season. They have brought in a lot of players, but for us it is not too important to worry about the players they have brought in. We just focus on ourselves.
“We feel as if we are getting better game after game and improving in all areas of the park. That is the most important thing. If we can keep doing that we will keep winning.”
Celtic’s charge for a seventh straight title looks assured after beating a laughable Ibrox team showing no signs of improvement with a deluded manager presiding over an all but bankrupt club.
