KYOGO FURUHASHI fired his goal tally to 28 strikes with his double salvo in the 3-2 win at Parkhead at the weekend.
Michael Beale’s Ibrox defenders will be sick of the sight of the prolific Japanese hitman who also tucked two behind Allan McGregor at Hampden in February to dynamite their hopes of a League Cup upset.
And it was Kyogo who clipped in the equaliser a couple of minutes from time in Govan at the start of the year to maintain the champions’ nine-point advantage at the Premiership pinnacle.

After the previous campaign’s 20 goals – delivered, remember, in a debut term that saw the striker sidelined for four months – Kyogo in now just two away from becoming a Half-Century Bhoy.
Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday are now in the sights of the deadly frontman who is appreciated by all who work with him in the field of battle on matchday.
Filipe Jota, speaking to Celtic TV, put it this way: “Kyogo is a big asset to us, he always delivers and he’s always in the right spot at the perfect time.
“We just need to find him because he has the quality to make it because he’s an amazing player.”
The achievement of crackshot Kyogo and his colleagues is worth a second look courtesy of the those good folk at Celtic TV.
