Celtic manager Ronny Deila has lauded midfielder Tom Rogic, who scored his side's first goal in a 2-0 win away at Partick Thistle today.

Rogic connected to flick the ball into the net in the 28th minute to hand Celtic the lead at Firhill, before Kris Commons then sealed the deal for the Bhoys in the 63rd minute.

Partick Thistle had no answer and slipped to defeat which ensures Celtic join Hearts in having taken six points from their opening two Scottish Premiership games this season.

Post-match Deila was full of praise for Rogic, a player he has predicted will feature much more heavily for Celtic over the course of the season, talking up his talent and insisting he was always going to give him a chance to impress.


"He was very good in the first 40 minutes. You can see what kind of talent he is", the Celtic manager told a press conference.


"His touch of the ball, awareness, scanning, understanding. There are a lot of things he can give to the team.

"I think we'll see much more of him", Deila continued.

"I told him I hadn't seen him so much when I came here. I saw he was injured but when we got him back I saw he had something special.

"He is a very good football player and I told him he'd never leave this club without getting a real chance.

"Now he's showing he deserves a chance and he's a very good professional that wants to develop and has a lot to give."

Celtic are next in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Kilmarnock for another Scottish Premiership clash, before Inverness visit Celtic Park next Saturday.
