Baggies Gearing Up For Promotion Push

West Bromwich Albion is the destination for the Aussie where he will be managed by Steve Bruce. There is a lot of negativity around the experienced manager, especially given the stature of the club and the talent amidst his ranks. Alex Mowatt and Okay Yokuslu are two excellent additions in the middle of the park whilst Brandon Thomas-Asante joined from Salford City and scored on his debut.

The Baggies have now brought the former Celtic man on board too and they need to kickstart their season. Bruce’s men currently occupy 16th with just one win in eight, six of the rest of the seven outings being draws incredibly. An injury to Daryl Dike has dented the forward line and, in spite of their ability, the likes of Grady Diangana and Karlan Grant aren’t properly firing yet.

About the Former Celtic Man

With six league titles, five Scottish cups and five Scottish league cups to his name, not to mention just shy of 200 appearances, Rogic will be remembered fondly. The former Celtic man has six goals to his name in the infamous Old Firm derby which is the real icing on the cake; he has never been a prolific goal scorer after all.

Rogic is clearly a player for the big occasion and this will be necessary for success at the Hawthorns. When football is back underway, Championship clashes against the likes of Birmingham City, Norwich City, Swansea City and Sheffield United await in the next month or two.
