Kyogo keeps doing his thing

It would be an understatement to say that Kyogo Furuhashi has been an absolute revelation since arriving at Celtic this summer.

The Japanese star has been nothing short of incredible and it is amazing to see how important he has become to this side so quickly. A month back, we saw how badly the Hoops struggled in his absence. But since he has returned from his injury, they have quickly rediscovered their form and are once again playing like genuine title contenders.

While it might be down to more than just Kyogo’s presence, there is no denying that the Japanese star has played a huge part in their upturn in form.

And what is more incredible is the fact that he would score much more often if he can just polish up his finishing in front of goal a bit more. That would be a scary thought for defences around Scotland.

Rogic’s absence could be a massive worry

A few weeks back, many felt that Tom Rogic and David Turnbull could not work together in the same midfield. It is safe to say that the duo have proved many people wrong already.

Turnbull has rediscovered his touch after a difficult start to the campaign and appears to be back to his effective best.

On the other hand, Rogic has played some of the best football of his Celtic career over the last few weeks. Thus, it goes without saying that the fact that he was forced off the pitch in the first-half against Hibernian will be a huge worry for Ange Postecoglou. One can only hope that it is not a serious issue and he is back on the pitch as soon as possible.

The team just did not look the same after he was substituted off and it is clear that Celtic do need him at this point of time. This just goes on to show how quickly things and perceptions can change in football.
