Aussies Abroad: Rogic seals eighth straight title with Celtic

Caltex Socceroos playmaker Tom Rogic has claimed yet another piece of silverware with Celtic as the Bhoys swatted aside Aberdeen 3-0 to secure the Scottish Premiership title.

Celtic were far too good for the Dons at Pittodrie, with Mikael Lustig breaking the deadlock just before the break before goals from Jozo Simunovic and Odsonne Edouard put the result beyond doubt.

Rogic played the full 90 minutes and assisted the final goal as Celtic notched up a remarkable eighth straight league title, one behind the Scottish record of nine.

It also puts the Glasgow club one win away from an unprecedented ‘treble treble’ if they can defeat Heart of Midlothian in the Scottish Cup final later this month.


In England there was positive news for Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan as his Brighton and Hove Albion side avoided the drop in the Premier League.

Cardiff City's 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace sealed the Bluebirds' relegation alongside Fulham and Huddersfield Town, meaning Brighton and Ryan will once again play top flight football next season.

To Cyprus and Apostolos Giannou rescued a point for AEK Larnaca as they drew 1-1 with Nea Salamis.

Giannou struck just before the hour mark after their opponents had opened the scoring in the second minute through Thiago.  

In Germany Mat Leckie played just over an hour for Hertha Berlin in their 3-1 win over VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.

The capital club scored two quick goals before the break to set up a win that will serve as a confidence boost heading into next season with the team firmly entrenched in the middle of the table.

Mat Leckie celebrates Hertha's 3-1 win.

Elsewhere in Germany Robbie Kruse missed out as his VfL Bochum side triumphed in a 4-2 thriller over 1. FC Magdeburg in the 2. Bundesliga.

Mitch Langerak was once again in goals for Nagoya Grampus as they played out a 1-1 draw with Shonan Bellmare in Japan.

The result puts them in second place in the J-League, four points behind league leaders FC Tokyo.
