Kyogo Furuhashi’s goal against Ferencvaros has been taken to 8.7m viewers by UEFA TV.
Celtic fans have spent all week marvelling at the strike with a far bigger audience now getting a look at the Tuesday afternoon thriller.
Just over 50,000 fans witnessed the goal in person with many more than that watching on television.

As well as being a wonder goal it was also vital in the context of the match and indeed the group.
After defeats in both of their opening matches and a goal-less first half Kyogo’s goal was the breakthrough that Celtic needed. Soon after Callum McGregor missed a penalty with David Turnbull sealing the points and giving Celtic genuine hope for Matchday Four in Budapest.
Tomorrow attention returns to domestic matters with St Johnstone tasked with keeping Kyogo and Jota out of the headlines as the hoops look to go to a point behind the SPFL league leaders.
