Celtic fans were all over the post-match tweet from Kyogo Furuhashi following the 2-0 win over Ferencvaros.

The 26-year-old possesses the rare combination of dazzling ability of the pitch alongside humility and gratitude to be doing the job that millions would love to have.

Early in the second half against the Hungarians he took a touch to control a brilliant through ball from Jota, one touch later and the ball was in the Ferencvaros net. Celtic’s Europa League campaign was off and running.

Confidence flowed through the Celtic ranks after that goal, a missed penalty and second goal soon followed to the delight of 50,000 inside the ground and many thousands more watching on television.

When Kyogo finally came off in the 86th minute he was given a great reception with supporters recognising a team player capable of delivering an extra dash of magic.

Next up for Kyogo and Celtic is St Johnstone with the replies to his tweet highlighting that he is being watched just as closely in Japan as in his new home in Scotland.

    Extraordinary first touch and finish, great ball from Jota too. This is how all football players should behave, respectful for the opportunity life has afforded him. The way he plays the game is like a breath of fresh air. Keep this up sir and you will become a legend, a king of kings. HH
