KYOGO FURUHASHI was back in training this morning to dispel suggestions he will miss the Viaplay League Cup Final at Hampden a week on Sunday.

The Japanese striker was forced to leave the field with a shoulder injury after only 14 minutes of the 5-1 Scottish Cup fifth round win over St Mirren at Parkhead on Saturday evening.

However, Kyogo was put through his paces with the rest of the Hoops first-team squad at Lennoxtown as they prepared for tomorrow’s Premiership visit of Aberdeen.
