Rogic stars as Celtic cruise to win at Motherwell

Tom Rogic’s first-half double saw Celtic stroll to a 4-0 win at Motherwell as Ange Postecoglou’s side opened up a four-point lead over Rangers.

The in-form Liel Abada, who starred in Celtic’s 3-0 destruction of Rangers on Wednesday, opened the scoring after 28 minutes with a simple finish before the returning Rogic took over.

The Australia international missed the Old Firm win while on international duty, but he made up for that with two goals before half-time to put the visitors in total control.

Rogic’s first, three minutes after the opener, was a beauty as the midfielder curled one into the top left corner from 25 yards, before a far simpler finish to make it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time.

Daizen Maeda’s deflected effort rounded off the scoring with 19 minutes to go as Celtic extended their lead over the champions to four points ahead of their home clash with Hearts later on Sunday.

What’s next?

Motherwell travel to Dundee United, while Celtic visit Aberdeen, with both Scottish Premiership games kicking off at 7.45pm on Wednesday.
