Nir Bitton’s social media posts hinted toward a Celtic exit last week and it’s turned out to be the case. The one that’s caught us all by surprise is Tom Rogic!
The Australian posted up images of some famous moments he’s had in a Celtic jersey on Thursday night prompting us to believe he could also be leaving the club. Well, that’s been confirmed this morning.
Both Nir and Tom will be heading for the Celtic exit after the title party on Saturday. It’s truly the end of an era.

✅ Quadruple Treble Winners
🏆 #cinchPrem Champions#CelticFC can announce that Tom Rogic & Nir Bitton will be leaving the club after nearly 10 years in Paradise.
Good luck Tom & Niro from everyone at #CelticFC!🍀

Both men have been at the club for a decade and both contributed to unprecedented success. The Australian will be remembered for that Invincible treble winning goal in the last minute against Aberdeen.
It has come as a shock to many Celtic supporters and a Celtic squad without Tom seems a very strange prospect. Nir has been Celtic’s utility man for years, playing wherever he’s been needed. Brendan Rodgers turned him into a centre back, and Ange brought the Israeli back into the midfield this season and he’s done some top work.
It will be sad to see the two lads go.
