After security initially turned the 25-year-old away, Rogic entered the pub to a chorus of cheers from the Sydney Celtic Supporters Club who had gathered for the game.

The Celtic star, currently dealing with injury, was surrounded by fans for the majority of the night and posed for several photos as the Hoops maintained their eight-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League ladder with a 0-0 draw.

While Brendan Rodgers' side were unable to claim all three points at Celtic Park, fans at the Sydney pub did not seem to mind, routinely breaking out a chorus of 'One Tom Rogic' for much of the 90 minutes.

As Rogic prepares to return to the side in the new year, this surprise visit home will undoubtedly help boost his morale after rumours of discontent surfaced in recent weeks.

Celtic will next have a three-week break before Brechin City visit Parkhead in Scottish Cup action on the 21st of January.
