Kyogo makes Celtic promise

Kyogo Furuhashi is in no rush to quit Celtic for the land of milk, honey and money south of the border.

Seven goals in his first month in Scotland made people sit up and take notice, last Sunday at Aberdeen he returned to the goal trail by chesting the ball into the net when other strikers would have panicked.

Despite the previous success of Shunsuke Nakamura Scotland remains something of a mystery to the Japanese media who are following the success of Takehiro Tomivasu at Arsenal.

As his absence demonstrated, Celtic’s fortunes this season look like being highly dependent on the fitness and form of Kyogo.

Picking up on an interview from Japan, The Sun reports the striker saying:

Many players go from Scotland to the EPL. It’s motivating to see Takehiro Tomiyasu do well. Good results could open that path for me, but I have to get results to survive at Celtic and the Japan National Team. I want to do the best I can and contribute to (both) teams.

On Tuesday Celtic fans will closely watch the action when Japan takes on Australia in a World Cup qualifier, not through an interest in Asian international matches but to keep an eye on their top scorer.

Returning to Glasgow fit and well later in the week will be a big relief for Ange Postecoglou as he prepares for a round of fixtures that includes away matches at Motherwell and Hibs who are both above Celtic in the SPFL table.
