“I’m not afraid of failure, I will continue to challenge and aim for the top,” Kyogo

Celtic striker Kyogo Furuhashi certainly looked more like his old self on Saturday.  The striker was restored to the starting line-up by Brendan Rodgers for the Scottish Premiership match against St Johnstone at Celtic Park.

Goalscoring exploits

It’s hardly surprising that Kyogo’s goalscoring exploits have been somewhat subdued this season.  That can be attributed to two factors, firstly the absence of Reo Hatate.  The midfield maestro always exceptional at linking up with his countryman and Kyogo usually does the rest when he is given the service.

Indifferent form

And secondly the indifferent form of Celtic wingers this season seems to have improved in recent weeks. Both Daizen Maeda and Nicolas Kuhn are now making major impacts.  Against Livingston in the Scottish Cup last weekend and the Perthside side at the weekend the wide men scored goals and chipped in with assists.

Kyogo was back amongst the goals in both matches and with Hatate’s return imminent we could be in for a strong finish to the season from our Japanese talisman.

Not afraid 

Kyogo posted this message on his social media accounts this morning, pointing out that “I’m not afraid of failure, I will continue to challenge and aim for the top.”

That’s a nice wee thought for the Celtic support as we start a new week. You really must believe us, you really must believe us…
