Socceroos midfielder Tom Rogic has scored his first goal since December as Celtic romped to a big win in the Scottish Premiership and edged closer to an unbeaten season.

Rogic scored the second goal of Celtic's 5-0 drubbing of Partick Thistle, with the 24-year-old Australian sliding in to divert Leigh Griffiths' cross into the net in the 26th minute.

The playmaker started a third consecutive match in the Premiership and completed 90 minutes, while fellow Aussie Ryan Edwards came on at half-time for Partick.

Tom Rogic thrilled to be back

Rogic has been working his way back from a foot injury, which saw him miss all games in January, February and March.

Brendon Rodgers' side have accumulated a whopping 103 points from their 37 games, equalling the highest tally in a season set by Martin O'Neill's Celtic in 2001-02.

They are also just one game away from completing an unbeaten season and becoming Scotland's version of the 'Invincibles'.
