Tom Rogic, a beloved player for Celtic, announced his retirement from football at the age of 30 in a moving message. The former Australian midfielder, who left West Brom of the Championship in the summer, has given up playing football.

He posted on Instagram, saying, “After great contemplation, I have decided to retire from professional football. “I’ve always been rather private about matters in my personal life, but given the gravity of the situation, I feel it’s critical that others comprehend my reasoning and process.

“Over the past seven years, my wife and I have experienced tremendously difficult fertility challenges. My wife and I were fortunate enough to welcome the arrival of our daughter in 2021 after years of trying and numerous unsuccessful rounds of IVF. Being a father has been the most rewarding experience of my life, and I have cherished every minute of it.

“We recently learned the wonderful news that our family is expanding and we will be expecting twins in 2024, after going through some more hardships and suffering with fertility therapy. It seems like the proper moment to devote my focus and attention to what is most important in my life—my family—given our history, how hard we have battled for this, and the problems that will arise from having twins and a 2-year-old.

“I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had a career in which the majority of my time was spent playing for Celtic Football Club, one of the largest clubs in the world, competing in European football, winning numerous trophies, and performing in front of 60,000 spectators every week.

I’ve also had the good fortune to play in significant international competitions and represent my nation with the Socceroos on more than 50 occasions.

I want to express my gratitude to all of my teammates for everything they have done for me over the past 12 years; it has been a unique experience that I will always remember. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have made such fantastic acquaintances through football and shared so many memorable occasions with them.

In addition, I want to congratulate Dermot Desmond and Peter Lawwell, the previous Celtic chairman. All of this would not have been feasible without their assistance. I was introduced to one of the top medical minds in the world by Peter and Dermot, and as a result, my wife and I were sent to the clinic that would give us the best chance to start a family.

I’d like to express my gratitude to Brendan Rodgers, Neil Lennon, John Kennedy, and Ange Postecoglou for their assistance and guidance during some trying moments. Indeed, I want to express my gratitude to everyone in football who has given me the chance to play the sport I adore throughout my career. Finally, I want to express my gratitude to all of my supporters, who have meant the world to me. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us and look forward to what happens next.
