KYOGO FURUHASHI netted a landmark goal when he nodded in Celtic’s second in the 3-0 triumph over St Mirren at windswept Parkhead yesterday.

It was a trademark strike from the polific Japanese international hitman that was acknowledged by beaming boss Brendan Rodgers in CQN earlier today.

Kyogo darted into open space to get his head to an exquisite right-wing cross from Alistair Johnston to thump a close-range effort beyond the exposed Zach Hemming.

The goal was extra special for the fans’ favourite – his SEVENTIETH for the champions since he arrived in a bargain £4.6million switch from J-League outfit Vissel Kobe in July 2021.

PARADISE…Kyogo Furuhashi celebrates his 70th goal for Celtic after his unstoppable header in the 3-0 win over St Mirren at Parkhead yesterday.

The fleet-footed forward, 29, claimed 20 strikes in his debut campaign, despite spending four months out with two separate injuries.

Kyogo rattled in 34 last time out with his last goal of a blistering crusade coming in the Scottish Cup Final on June 3 when he netted the opener in the 3-1 success over Inverness Caley Thistle.

His unstoppable header against the Paisley club was his 16th of a topsy-turvy campaign where he has been striving for consistency.

The champions’ main dangerman could be coming good at a crucial stage of the term with five league games to play and a Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen due at Hampden on Saturday.

His 70th goal for the Hoops is well worth a second look thanks to those good folk at Celtic TV Unique Angle.
