Celtic grabbed a vital away win at Ross County at the weekend thanks to goals from Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota which leaves Ange Postecoglou’s men on the verge of reclaiming the Scottish Premiership title at the first time of asking.
Making his first start since December, Kyogo headed home his 17th goal of the season and showed glimpses of his brilliant best in what was a crucial result in the Highlands.
Not to be outdone, 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.
