KYOGO FURUHASHI made his first start since December at the weekend, scoring the all-important opening goal against Ross County to send the Hoops on their way in Dingwall.
It was the Japanese striker’s 17th goal of the season and he showed glimpses of his brilliant best in what was a vital league result in the Highlands.
Not to be outdone, team-mate Jota also had his best game in recent times, providing the assist for Kyogo and then sealing the result with a late strike of his own to ensure Celtic left with all 3 points.
Many speculated of a slip up against a confident County side, but as always Ange Postecoglou and the players blocked out all external noise to continue an impressive run of league form that has now seen us win 24 and draw 4 of our last 28 games.
Ange’s men now hold a 6 point lead going into the final 4 league fixtures, meaning a win at Celtic Park in Sunday’s final Glasgow Derby of the season would effectively (though not mathematically) see the league title begin its journey back to the East end.
Will Kyogo finally start the game in the No.9 role? Will Giorgos Giakoumakis return to provide some physicality? Will #GT3 grab another goal? Whatever happens Celtic Park will be brimming with anticipation on what could turn out to be a very beautiful Sunday.
Tino, Mif & James were on the mics to discuss all of the above and more in this episode of The Celtic Exchange Weekly.
