SUSPENDED Central Coast Mariners attacking midfielder Tomas Rogic will depart Australia on Thursday to link with Scottish heavyweights Glasgow Celtic at their mid-season training camp in Spain.

The ‘Bhoys- are currently in Spain preparing for the second half of the Scottish Premier League season as well as their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie against Italian giants Juventus commencing in February.

Rogic will participate in training as well as sports science and fitness testing with Celtic in Spain, however the Mariners can confirm that no offer has yet been tabled for the recently capped Qantas Socceroo.

Central Coast Mariners General Manager of Football, Lawrie McKinna, said: “This is a great opportunity for Tomas to train with Celtic-s first team squad. Celtic are in their mid-season break and are busy preparing for their Champions League matches against Juventus in February, so Tom will undoubtedly learn a lot from the experience.”

Rogic will re-join his Mariners teammates on Thursday 17 January, two days before he will next be eligible to represent the yellow and navy against Newcastle Jets on Saturday 19 January at Bluetongue Stadium.
